You may remember reading my story in the Sept. 7 edition of Park Cities People about two Highland Park High School graduates preparing to open a new restaurant in Preston Center. Well today's the official grand opening for the trendy Tex-Mex restaurant: Ocho Kitchen + Cocktails.
Under the direction of Mi Piaci's Brain Black and operating partner Ben Crosland, the multi-level restaurant offers a unique menu prepared by chef Eric DiStafano of the popular Coyote Cafe in Santa Fe, and a trendy tequila bar and lounge on its outdoor top deck.
Crosland developed the house margarita himself, which is $7, and said the rest of the menu is "unlike anything the Park Cities has seen." Ocho Kitchen + Cocktails is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily in the 8400 block of Preston Road. For pictures of the place, click here.
