Buen viaje! New restaurant Arenas Marisqueria and Lounge is poised to bring “resort-style” seafood dining to San Antonio's North Side, according to details shared by its owners.

The family behind longtime Mexican eatery Sabor Cocina Mexicana will open the new Latin American-inspired eatery in November at 19903 Stone Oak Parkway, Suite 202.

Arenas Marisqueria will offer a “sophisticated, more modern nautical-themed atmosphere,” along with scratch-made favorites including mojarra chicharron and camarones mojo de ajo, the owners said in an emailed statement.

"We've been wanting to do a seafood restaurant for a really long time. We love seafood, and my dad makes a great ceviche," executive chef Luis Vazquez Sr. said in a release. "Our goal is to differentiate ourselves from the other Latin seafood restaurants in San Antonio. We're not reinventing the wheel, but the goal is to be more subtle, more refined.”

Arenas also will offer a weekly happy hour featuring signature cocktails such as La Emperadora, made with Empress Gin, St Germain and peach liqueurs.

Although the restaurant will begin serving next month, the owners haven't set a formal opening date.
