Burgerteca opened last December, and now Villa Rica, the Veracruz-style restaurant that will share the ground floor level of the Big Tex Flats, will open next Thursday, February 22.

Inspired by and created with the Guzman family of Veracruz, Villa Rica will feature Mexican seafood, ceviche, and a mojito bar. Per a press release sent today, the restaurant will also include dishes such as “rice 'tumbada” style, made with fish, shrimp, octopus, crab and clams and a creamy fish broth, as well as a tuna 'marejada' with sliced tuna & cream cheese, avocado, jalapeño chile emulsion and ponzu sauce.”
