our restaurant concept
we want to open a restaurant / bar in Hyde Park. the concept will center on Latin flavors, both in the food as well as in drinks. we’re thinking of it as a Latin fusion, focusing on flavors, rather than full meals.
we both love all things Mexican and South American – cultures, music, food, drinks, art, architecture, etc. the restaurant we are planning will provide a tasty repertoire of ethnic ingredients and new creative recipes. we will serve delicious Latin flavor appetizer-style small plates – a selection of creative tacos, empanadas, a variety of Latin-flavor finger foods, tapas, spicy chicken wings (baked, not fried), plus a variety of salsas and chips.
our other main focus is on local, responsibly grown ingredients, organic whenever possible, and employ various “green” methods of food preparation, as well as lighting and cleaning to further the goals of sustainable development. the bar focus will be on Latin American rum and tequila cocktails (with a big selection of mojitos) plus a rich selection of quality South American and European beers on tap.
there is no place remotely like this in Hyde Park. we will make it amazing. :-)
