Café Ynez Will Bring Mexico City Diner To Washington Avenue

cafe-ynez-logoJill Weber and Evan Malone, who have brought us JET Wine Bar and Rex 1516 are opening their third restaurant, Cafe Ynez at 2025 Washington Avenue on April 14th.

The BYOB, which is adjacent to Malone’s NextFab Studio, will serve up breakfast, lunch and dinner during the week and will serve brunch on the weekend.

In the kitchen, Mexico City native, JC Piña will be bringing a few of his mother’s “secret” recipes to life. Daily lunch specials will include seasonal soups, tacos, burritos and cemitas (sandwiches). A takeout counter will offer neighbors a to-go choice that will include whole rotisserie chicken. The chickens will be available by the whole or half. A half-chicken and two sides will set you back just $10.
