The team behind the excellent fried chicken and biscuits at Whistle Britches has something else to cluck about: a new Tex-Mex restaurant called Muchacho, Escape the Hatch reports.
Dallas chef Omar Flores, who earned multiple James Beard Award nods for his now-shuttered restaurant Casa Rubia, will open a Tex-Mex restaurant at the Plaza at Preston Center early September.
The 70-seat restaurant has a 30-seat outdoor patio and will take over space formerly operated by Taco Diner.
The restaurant will serve Tex-Mex classics influenced by the food Flores grew up eating in El Paso – but elevated.
Menu items will range from queso to fajitas, made with smoked and grilled meats.
