The boom continued in 2014. 2015 is getting off to a good start. Chavez, a Durango-flavored taco and small plates venture from the Cantinetta family of restaurants, is set to open Saturday night on 12th Ave.
Chavez is a culinary coming home for Duranguense head chef Gabriel Chavez. After five years in the kitchen at Cantinetta, Trevor Greenwood’s Wallingford Italian restaurant, Chavez is taking charge with his hometown favorites in Greenwood’s latest venture.
In addition to a rotating menu of tacos and antojitos (Mexican appetizers), Chavez will also feature one main seafood dish a night and a tasteful-but-not-overblown selection of tequila and mezcal.
One down… dozens to go.
Chavez is located at 1734 12th Ave and is open 5 to 11 weekday, 5 to midnight on the weekends. You can learn more at facebook.com/Chavezrestaurant.
