Rosario’s owner Lisa Wong appears ready to expand the Mexican food hotspot’s footprint into the vacant property that was the longtime home to El Mirador, the San Antonio Express-News reports
According to the daily, a banner appeared on the facade of the El Mirador property that simply says, “Rosario’s Coming 2021.” The million-dollar question is whether the site will be another Rosario’s or a relocation of the original.
Wong was coy with the the Express-News
, saying she isn’t ready to reveal her plan just yet. However, she did say that when she purchased the property from restauranteur Chris Hill for a cool $3 million in 2018, she she had no immediate plans for the site but was looking to develop a concept there.
Hill — of Esquire Tavern, Downstairs and highly anticipated tiki bar Hugman’s Oasis — purchased El Mirador from the Treviño family, who founded the restaurant in 1968 and operated it until a sale in 2014.
Wong’s restaurant ventures include a second Rosario’s on San Pedro Avenue and upscale Mexican eatery Ácenar on the River Walk.
