The dining spots include a Korean eatery called Bibim Box, a Dominican place called Las Palmas, and a Venezuelan restaurant called Las Carolinas and we have been told that they are all open to the public, with hours being 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM Monday through Saturday and Sundays from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
