The celebration begins at 5:30 pm and will feature a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony with Mayor David Martin. Reservations for the Grand Opening are not necessary and admission is free.

Azuca is a Latin American Bistro with a specialty cocktail menu. Its cozy bar highlights drinks with an island feel using an array of rums, tequilas, piscos, cachacas and mezcals. Mr. Lopez noted, “We offer mojitos, margaritas and other exotic drinks mixed with surprising ingredients for an interesting spin." In addition, Azuca’s authenic menu features arepas and more while dessert choices include flan, tres leches, churros and the like. Azuca is the go-to locale for Latin food enthusiasts seeking a great meal, contemporary cocktail menu and a fun vibe to boot.

Gastro Bar is a wine bar showcasing Mediterranean tapas with Spanish, Italian and French influences. The small-plate appetizers will include signature dishes such as bistecca tartar, albondigas, paella and a variey of flatbreads. Mr. Lopez describes Gastro Bar as “the ultimate wine and tapas destination.”

Both restaurants feature exciting menus developed by Lopez and his family, in conjunction with Executive Chef, Vincent Ricciardelli, hailing from Manhattan’s Grape & Vine restaurant. The two eateries will feature pre-fixe business offerings, Sunday brunch and take out service. Private parties and large groups are welcome.
