WICHITA — There’s a new Mexican restaurant opening in the former Quiznos space at Murdock and Waco.
Husband and wife Javier Chavez and Claudia Orozco are opening Pimiento around the first of July.
The restaurant is named for a pepper that’s similar to a bell pepper, Orozco says.
Chavez used to own Chavez Restaurant near Central and McLean in 2001.

The restaurant also will serve beer.
