Last August I wrote about a new Mexican restaurant coming to 330 State Street, brought to you by the family that owns Fishouse, Boathouse and SB Shellfish Co. Sources tell me that there is a chance the new eatery might open in April or May. I am also hearing that the name of the restaurant is still undecided but that the leading candidate is “The Rio.”

    I love mexican food but does SB need ANOTHER Mexican Rest.?? Just seems like overkill. Unless they have a different take on it ala Rick Bayless Rest. in Chicago and his new one in LA. High end, gourmet and HIP.

    Jerry, SB always needs another Mexican restaurant because it’s the only one that the residents can’t get enough of and feel knowledgeable about. The more low-brow the better for this American Riviera. Why have so many legitimate high-end restaurants closed while taquerias and other Mexican joints endure?

      David, I think there is a place for a higher end Ca. Mex. place. I just think we are at saturation for a standard place. Just cannibalizing the other Mex. places.

      Mexico has a very diverse cuisine just wish we had some of it here instead of the basic low end stuff that proliferates the rest. scene.
