“I’ve always had a love for ethnic cuisine and have many memories eating in New York and Chicago’s Chinatown districts as a young chef,” Pacheco said in a prepared statement. “When I saw the opportunity to do a concept in Roswell, modern Chinese street food just made sense to me. It’s edgy, different, yet familiar. I don’t want all the pretentious vibe you might get from fine dining. I want to bring late night Chinatown to Downtown Roswell.”
Krespo’s, which opened in 2014, served a variety of fish and seafood dishes. Josovitz said there are not currently plans for the restaurant to reopen in another location.
