New upscale Mexican restaurant

Posted:

DENISON, TX -- Denison is getting a new upscale Mexican food restaurant.

The new eatery is taking over the old palazzo building on West Chestnut street in downtown Denison.

The owner of the project says the new restaurant would be called rustico.

Which is Spanish for rural or country.

Plans for the huge building call for a large kitchen plus an entertainment room for special events.

This is good news for the City of Denison which has been trying to attract more people downtown. 

"This building will transition from an event space into a full time restaurant, and so we're really excited about that because the potential to have more people in on a daily basis is going to be great for the entire downtown," Donna Dow said Denison main street director.

The owner says he hopes to open by the end of the year.
