The Restaurant Unassuming at the first glance, the design of the restaurant is meant to feel energetic and welcoming “mi casa es tu casa” it is our take on Colonial Mexican style, designed by talented architect team of Kayla Brown from Bold Architecture and Yves Poitras from Hereby Arch. Highlight of the space are the grand turquoise lit arches running perpendicular to the depth of the room. The bar takes the stage as it embodies the importance of community and celebration, the restaurant showcases both open and semi-private spaces that capture the energy and vibe with a smart and functional layout. Playing in the background is our own Latin music favorite hits, the restaurant and soon to be Patio overlooking 17th Ave offers a vibrant scene for any dinner or late-night fiesta
