The Mexicano will feature a build-your-own Michelada bar — touted as the first restaurant in the country to have one — an in-restaurant DJ, and a large bar, 5,000-square-foot dining room, and outdoor patio.

Staying true to his over-the-top creations, such as the Banana Split Brioche French Toast at Hash or the foot-long cannoli at Sicilian Baker, The Mexicano will have its own signature flares, like a 50-ounce margarita, a piñata margarita that is served in a personal-sized piñata that people can take home, a three-foot quesadilla, and lava rock fajitas served on a hot lava stone.

Street tacos, tamales, pineapple guacamole, shrimp cocktail, and various meats and seafood dishes, as well as desserts, such as churros and flan, are also on the menu. The michelada bar will have some 40 toppings to choose from, such as oysters, shrimp cocktail, pickled jicama, dry chorizo, and tamarindo sticks.
