Grand Re-Opening Tomorrow: La Cocina

Posted By on Wed, Oct 6, 2010 at 4:32 PM

They’ve been busy down at La Cocina, the restaurant inside Old Town Artisans at 201 N. Court Ave. The restaurant closed in August for renovations to the dining room and kitchen, and re-opens tomorrow with a new menu and longer hours. (They’ve actually been open since mid-September, but tomorrow is the "official" grand re-opening.)

La Cocina—once only open for lunch—now serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, says manager Allie Baron. They’ve also installed a coffee shop in the courtyard that opens daily at 8 a.m.

About that new menu: Baron says it focuses on light, regional fare, and is teeming with vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. She also listed off a few of the signature cocktails—the Sonoran-style cosmopolitan made with prickly-pear juice is a stroke of genius—which are available at a discount at happy hour from 5 to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Baron said live, local music will be featured five nights a week, and that there won’t be a cover charge. Visit the eatery’s website for more information.
