There’s a new restaurant opening on Fraser Street, and it’s the definition of restaurant porn if you ask us.

Escobar, a stunning new Latin-American influenced eatery, is prepping to officially open its doors for the first time on May 11.

This spot’s interior is DRAMA in the best sense and we expect it to look even more sultry come night time.

The talented team behind Escobar includes owners Ari Demosten and Alex Kyriazis,  Executive Chef Sarah Kashani (formerly Charlie’s Little Italian), and Bar Director Bobby Kordonis, who have lined up a Latin-influenced menu made with fresh and locally-sourced ingredients.

Patrons can expect eats inspired by Latin and Spanish cuisine such as empanadas to branzino, along with several vegan and vegetarian options.

As for the drinks, we’re in for a treat with this new neighbourhood haunt.

Escobar will boast a gin and tonic program which includes over 20 gins and a selection of botanicals, along with specialty cocktails and barrel-aged options (we’re talking 60 days minimum) that will be expertly paired with fare to give foodies the ultimate intriguing experience.
