CAREY — Moreno’s Casual Dining celebrated its banquet hall expansion Saturday with a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Wyandot and Carey Chambers of Commerce.

“It is an exciting time right now,” Moreno’s owner Chef Angel Moreno said.

“It’s been about a year and three months in the works.”

The banquet hall is called Moreno’s Vault. Located next door to Moreno’s Casual Dining, it can host up to 300 people for events.

Moreno said the name was inspired by the location’s previous tenants.

“It actually used to be a bank,” he said.

“It used to be Huntington Bank. It was very convenient on the side of my restaurant. We kept the bank vault intact because It’s just something that no other banquet hall has. When it became available, we weren’t sure we could get it but we for sure wanted it. We were looking to expand our parking and we decided why not just utilize the entire building and open a new banquet hall?”

The new hall has already hosted a small event for a test run, but Moreno says that after the ribbon cutting ceremony, Moreno’s Vault is officially open for business.

The primary stipulation for the hall is only Moreno’s can be the caterer for the event.

“The hall doesn’t have kitchen but Moreno’s is next door and all the food can be cooked and transferred over from the restaurant,” Moreno said.

“The vault also has a liquor license.”

Moreno said some 2019 weddings already have been booked at the vault as well as other business events and even non-profit fundraisers like the upcoming Art Connections auction in late February.

He also wished to remind area residents that Moreno’s has a smaller banquet hall connected to its restaurant which can host up to 150 people.

Reservations are being taken for Moreno’s Vault now.

“We’re very, very, very excited,” Moreno said.

“It hopefully takes off soon.”
