Hugo Ortega's Caracol Opening Pushed Back

By Amber Ambrose  |  December 6, 2013

Do not show up this Saturday at Hugo Ortega and Tracy Vaught's newest venture, Caracol and expect to get a table. The restaurant will not open on Dec. 7 as originally planned.

A statement from Caracol reads in part: "We thought that we would be open this weekend, but we have a few more delays that are out of our control. We are shooting for an opening next week but the exact date is not known yet." We'll wait - though not patiently - as long as it takes for a taste of Ortega's take on regional Mexican seafood. In the meantime, pay a visit to one of their other restaurants, Backstreet Cafe or Hugo's, to get a feel for what's to come.
