Citrus Restaurant closing; Reyes Mezcaleria opening in its place

Citrus Restaurant, part of Craig Ustler's Urban Life Management Restaurant Group, will close Monday, Jan. 28, and a new concept—Reyes Mezcaleria—by a prominent local restaurateurs Jason and Sue Chin (Osprey Tavern, Seito Sushi) will open in its stead.

As you can probably guess from the name, the new restaurant will feature Mexican cuisine along with an extensive mezcal and tequila list.

Reyes Mezcaleria will embody an interior design evocative of Tulum and Quintana Roo, Mexico and, like Osprey Tavern, feature a central bar. A large patio area will comprise the redesign.

Ustler, who in a release said "it was time for a change and an updated concept in the North Quarter District," will have a minority stake in the new venture, with the Chins retaining majority ownership.

Citrus Restaurant opened in the North Quarter District back in April 2007 to generally positive acclaim. Sister resto North Quarter Tavern opened next door in June 2015. North Quarter Tavern will remain open.
