“Charro Del Rey” to Open Downtown January 9, Now Hiring

The seafood-focused restaurant will open next door to sister restaurant Charro Steak.

Flores Concepts announced they are opening their new restaurant Charro Del Rey on Wednesday, January 9.

The seafood-focused restaurant will open next door to sister restaurant Charro Steak at 178 E. Broadway Blvd., which previously housed Even Stevens Sandwiches.

“As we considered doing this, we wanted a place that pays respects to my uncle who passed last year, as well as all things Charro [and] my father, whose nickname is king,” said Ray Flores Jr., president of Flores Concepts.

Seafood will be sourced mostly from the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez.

Chefs Carlotta Flores and Gary Hickey developed the menu featuring their take on vintage recipes, Mexican seafood, and more with inspiration from Culiacán, Sinaloa, and San Carlos.
