Another restaurant is coming to Delray Beach's East Atlantic Avenue, and it's not a trattoria or a gastropub.
It's Mexican. Well, gringo Mexican, anyway.
It's Carlos & Pepe's, a fixture in Fort Lauderdale for more than three decades, now branching out with a Delray spot in the tony Worthing Place condo complex just east of the Intracoastal. With a hoped-for debut in August, the new C&P's will reprise the look, ambiance, menu, and prices of its Broward counterpart, says owner Dave Alderman, though it will be a good deal smaller.
What that means is the same rustic, wood-centric décor and casual, "neighborhood" atmosphere, plus a value-oriented menu attuned to "North American taste buds" that encompasses everything from C&P's signature nachos, fajitas, and enchiladas to pizzas, caesar salads, and burgers.
