This Just In

29 Oct

For those who cannot await the next downtown opening, Barrio Cuisine, at Broadway and Fifth, plans a soft opening Thursday with a Native Blessing at 6 PM.  They officially open on Friday, Halloween, at 4.

Housed in the Julian Drew Building in former digs of O2 Fitness and non-profit space, they have worked feverishly for the last ten weeks to prep for opening.  Owner Kelly promises contemporary Native American cuisine grounded in the roots of Yaqui and Tohono O’Odham tradition.

She gave me a sneak peek tonight.  Art and craft are evident throughout.  I continue to highly appreciate restauranteurs’ support of local work to add to the aesthetic and specialness of where we are and who we are.  Welders were working on new windows tonight.  Kelly has created lots of places for community gathering for food, drink and conversation.

Check out their Facebook page to see some of head chef Eduardo Leon’s creations.
