Solon -- Bret Adams, owner of the Chef Art Pour Restaurant Group, has announced that Solon will be the home to the first Pacos Tacos/Tequila.
A Jan. 27 release describes the venture as "a new innovative, hip and edgy East Side dining landmark featuring Mexican street food that will open this summer."
The restaurant pays homage to the nickname Adams gives his eldest son, Hunter, whom he calls Paco.
Chef Art Pour Restaurant Group brought their third Burntwood Tavern to Solon -- there is another in Cuyahoga Falls -- more than two years ago.
"Two years ago, we opened Burntwood Tavern in Solon," Adams said. "We are humbled by how the city embraced our original concept, and we're thrilled to provide this area with another distinctive dining experience."
Featuring Mexican dishes incorporating fresh tastes, light offerings and flavor combinations will be the hallmark of the new Pacos Tacos/Tequila at 6140 SOM Center Road.
Guests will see custom, hand-designed lighting which accents a playful "Day of the Dead" design motif, inspired by the popular Mexican holiday that focuses on loving gatherings of family and friends to celebrate the spirit of those who have moved on.
Menu items will be made in-house and feature more than 15 fresh, mix-and-match taco combinations made from its rotisserie of spit fired lamb, whole roasted chicken, pulled pork shoulder, beef brisket and spicy duck.
Tableside guacamole carts encourage guests to interact with the chef-provided flavors of the restaurant creating their own unique dining experience and tastes.
Margaritas will arrive in flights with the restaurant's own infused tequilas. Fun, exotic flavors abound, allowing guests to savor drinks with a depth appropriate for the food offerings.
