Te Deseo, a new Latin American restaurant with a strong focus on seafood, is officially ready to kick open its doors.

The restaurant opens for dinner service on Wednesday, August 7 at 2700 Olive Street in the Harwood District, bringing a new destination for tacos, ceviche, and more Latin-influenced eats to the neighborhood. Helmed by executive chef Ty Thaxton, who comes to Dallas via Mexico, the restaurant will showcase the cuisines of Peru, Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil.

Diners can look forward to dishes like tuna ceviche in guajillo oil, wood-grilled chicken skewers, and small plates like charred octopus and fancy elotes to start. Main dishes include wood-grilled Chilean sea bass and grilled shrimp tacos, with Peruvian jumbo asparagus and borracho beans on the side. On the cocktail menu, find drinks like the Callao, a mix of pisco, yuzu liqueur, and lime, and the Centro, a tequila-based sip with passionfruit juice, ginger liqueur, and a raspberry popsicle garnish.

Before making the trip to the Harwood, scope out the menu for Te Deseo below. In the beginning, Te Deseo will be open for dinner service only Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.
