Taco Cabana® to Celebrate Grand Opening of New Houston Location

Unveils New Contemporary Mexican Prototype Design

HOUSTON, Aug. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Unveiling a fresh and unique design, San Antonio-based Taco Cabana will celebrate the opening of its newest restaurant at 127 Yale Street in Houston, Texas, on August 27, 2012. The new location will feature a more dynamic and inviting atmosphere to enhance the overall guest experience while celebrating the contemporary flavors of Mexico.

Capturing the Essence of Mexico Inside, decorative metal "estrella" lights hang from the ceiling, while 'papel picado' (iconic cut paper flags symbolizing a Mexican celebration) accents fashioned from laser-cut metal add a festive flair to the mix. String lights break the plane of the building, extending from outside on the patio into the dining room, bringing the patio experience indoors.

Striking street-life photos from the heart of Mexico line the walls, echoing Taco Cabana's focus on bringing authentic, contemporary Mexican cuisine to its guests. Texas-based photographer Rick Hunter sought to capture images contrary to the common American perception of Mexico, instead opting to capture everyday glimpses of true Mexican culture.

"We sent Rick deep into Mexico to capture the true essence of the country's culture for our restaurants," said Todd Coerver, chief brand officer at Taco Cabana. "Our intent is to accurately reflect the flavors of Mexico in everything we do – from our restaurant design, to the photos that adorn our walls, to the music we play, to the fresh ingredients blended into our made-from-scratch recipes."

Contemporary Mexican Architecture The moment guests walk into the new restaurant, they will notice a cleaner, simpler design, balanced with splashes of bold color and modern geometric shapes. Inspired by renowned Mexican architects Ricardo Legorreta and Luis Barragan, known for their minimalist architecture, the new design marks a departure from previous restaurant locations and reflects the brand's commitment to celebrating the contemporary aspects of Mexican culture and design.

In addition, a redesigned patio with elegant bi-fold doors enhances the perception of bringing the outside in. Landscaping featuring cacti in geometric linear designs adds to the ambiance and offers a relaxing contrast to the bustling city that surrounds.
