Mextopia, the Ricardo Avila Spot on Greenville, Has Closed
The Dallas Observer's 2010 Readers' Pick for Best New Restaurant, Mextopia, has closed.
Leslie Brenner got the details in a voice mail from owner Ricardo Avila. The plan is to reopen somewhere else with a new concept. Avila cited road construction near his restaurant as part of the problem.
We're not sure how we missed this, but the Mextopia Facebook page regurlarly promoted "sweet & spicy bacon" and beer happy hour specials (photo below). Actually, there are more pictures of bacon on their Facebook page than there are of tacos. Lots of bacon.
I'm going go out on a limb and predict Dallas' first-ever bacon/Tex-Mex fusion restaurant. We'll certainly stay on top of this situation.
