Peep the Menu for Chino Chinatown, Dropping Dec. 30

Just in time for the New Year, Uno Immanivong's long-awaited Chino Chinatown will hit mega-development Trinity Groves on December 30.

Chino is a joint project from Immanivong — whom many folks may recognize from her stint on the ABC cooking reality show The Taste, in which she wowed judge Anthony Bourdain with her use of offal — and restaurateur/real estate guru Adrian Verdin.

Chino has showcased its food at many pop-ups and Trinity Groves events over the past several months, but in case you're not yet familiar with its cuisine, the menu promises Latin-Asian fusion fare like cochinita pibil steamed buns and "phozole," a mashup of Vietnamese pho and Mexican pozole with hominy, bone marrow broth and oxtail.

Expect very good things from the bar side of the menu — the cocktails were designed by bartender extraordinaire Jason Kosmas and will be overseen day-to-day by Ian Reilly, who tended bar at Mockingbird Station cocktail bar The People's Last Stand before a stint designing and executing cocktails at Bowl & Barrel. Signature cocktails will include selections like "The Mezerac" with rye, mezcal, cola and cocoa bitters; there will also be cocktails available by the pitcher. UPDATE: Some of the information in the press release was incorrect; the cocktail list was actually designed by Reilly (who is also functioning as general manager) and pitcher cocktails will not be on offer, although there will be draft cocktails; Reilly says "Not everybody's got 10 minutes to wait for a drink, especially when you're out walking Trinity Groves. I don't want them to either."

In the beginning, Chino will be open for dinner and late-night service Monday through Saturday; Sunday dim sum brunch will be added sometime in January. Peep the menu below:
