The people at Mercado San Agustin say a new restaurant focusing on seafood and dishes made with local produce is opening there soon.
Agustin, the restaurant, will be a "Mediterranean style grill modeled after the bistros and brasseries of Europe," writes Glen Stosius, who is a partner in the group that operates Mercado San Agustin.
If I'm not mistaken, this restaurant is going in where Casa Marita Restaurante Argentino was expected to open. That restaurant was going to specialize in meat smoked over mesquite wood before the owners backed out some months ago.
Still, the space where Casa Marita was going in is spacious and lovely and will make a nice home for a seafood restaurant. That area needs a good seafood restaurant anyway.
Stosius says it will be a casual affair, and that it's expected to open by the end of the year.
