Barrio Urbano: Chef Silvana Salcido Esparza to Open Restaurant at The Yard in Phoenix

"It almost feels as though I am destined to never open a restaurant from ground-up," chef Silvana Salcido Esparza wrote in a message to Chow Bella on Thursday night.

Yet again, she'll be taking over a space abandoned by a shuttered restaurant. This time Esparza's taking her talent and unique brand of Mexican cuisine to Sam Fox's The Yard, specifically to the space that formerly housed Lola Tapas. She plans to open Barrio Urbano, a Mexican breakfast spot.
