Estrella, a Yucatecan-inspired cocktail club and restaurant overlooking the Beltline’s Eastside Trail, will open Thursday, August 30.
Estrella will feature an open-air bar, umbrella seating and a list of bubbly and classic Latin cocktails, such as “Hemingway daiquiris and pisco sours,” housed atop Bazati, a mini department store will shops and restaurants in the Common Ground development.
Roberto Solis created the Yucatecan menu and Chef Cam Floyd will helm Estrella’s kitchen as chef de cuisine.
“Floyd spent time learning Yucatecan cooking techniques and mastering each recipe at Solis’ acclaimed Nectar in Merida, which is considered by many as one of Mexico’s finest and most innovative eateries,” according to a press release Wednesday.
“Solis’ cooking techniques are influenced by the region he calls home, with traditional staples transformed by fresh and surprising ingredients, such as flowers, herbs, and spices.”
Guests can expect both shareable small plates and main dishes rooted in Mexican specialties, such as ceviche and adobo chicken and regional Yucatecan specialties, including cochinita spring rolls and chayitas.
Inspired by its name, meaning “star” in Spanish, Estrella was designed to represent the “carefree style of mid-century Miami and the modernity of present-day Merida.”
Estrella will be open Wednesday through Sunday beginning at 4 p.m., with Latin brunch on Saturdays and Sundays starting soon.
