It’s a big space. Ometeo includes multiple dining areas, a large outdoor bar and a second-floor mezzanine lounge that can be reserved for private dining and events. It is a total of 11,000-square-feet inside and 2,000-square-feet of outside dining.
There is no menu available yet, but an announcement about the restaurant’s pending opening said Erales, who grew up in El Paso, Texas, “draws inspiration from the techniques and traditions of his childhood, celebrating lesser-known ingredients and introducing guests to dishes beyond what most Americans expect from Tex-Mex cuisine.”
Erales spent two years working with Long Shot hospitality chef and partner Kyle Bailey to develop the menu.
Ometeo will join other restaurants at the sprawling Capital One Center, including Wren and Starr Hill Biergarten. Opening in 2024 are Star Hill Brewpub, Ox & Rye and Sisters Thai.
