December was a good month for restaurant openings highlighted by Rae, Fogo de Chão, Tiffin Café and James . Only the dining room is open at James as they are still awaiting their liquor license. When they get that, the lounge will open, complete with what seems to be this winter’s must have accessory, the fireplace. BYOB with no corkage fee in the meantime.
Some restaurants did see their openings slip and are now expected to open in January. Among the highlights will be Xochitl and Tinto. Stay up to date by frequently checking out our Openings section.
