    “Cheers to you guys and cheers to a family affair,” Councilman Bryan Morera said. “I know you have another branch at another location and I’m very grateful you chose Miami Lakes as your next location.”  From left: Councilman Ray Garcia; Tico Casamayor, president, public relations, Miami Lakes Chamber of Commerce; Councilman Bryan Morera; Raico Belmas, owners’ nephew; Economic Development Committee Chair Matthew Casamayor; Israel Ezkanazi, family friend; Co-owner Mitzania Blanco; Aliana Alcanmutz, grandmother; Tania Reyes, mother; Co-owners Lissy Domenech and Alex Polanco; Vice Mayor Tony Fernandez; Ray Palacios, Miami Lakes Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Committee; Janet Miret Mazon, Roberto Cavalli representative; Fred Senra, president, Miami Lakes Chamber of Commerce and Denise Sainz, Miami Lakes Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Committee.
