The family behind El Charro Cafe announced plans to open Charro Vida on Wednesday, May 29 at 7109 N. Oracle Rd.
Charro Vida pays homage to Mediterranean, European, and Sonoran Desert heritage. Furthermore, it will embrace their commitment to longevity, sustainability, and enjoyment through sharing delicious meals.
As a result, oils in recipes will only be olive and seed oils. Additionally, the restaurant will focus on local produce and sustainable proteins.
The kitchen features two distinct, separate cooking areas: one that cooks proteins and one that exclusively cooks plant-based items.
The restaurant will also feature a full bar with a more robust red and organic wine selection, in addition to classic cocktails and wellness-conceived cocktails. Lastly, the family's Hola Hemp line of vegan high-protein recipes will be utilized.
Operating hours are 10 a.m. - 9 p.m. daily.
Stay tuned for a follow-up article with an in-depth look at the menu.
