    Website still saying January 8th opening. Could this be the pre-opening rehearsal?

      YES! They're open! I just made reservations for lunch tomorrow as they man on the phone suggested just in case. Who knows if that is REALLY necessary but I did it anyway. Will report back.

        Daughter home from college, very excited to learn that Chichen-Itza had just opened. We were planning on a panuchos run before she left town again. Went to the new restaurant. Nice room, lots of lovely new things on the menu. We ate our favorites and tried a few new items. I had ribs in a light/smoky mole; meat falling off the bone, the sauce had a lot of subtle flavors, (do I remember what it was made of? of course not, sorry guys, brain overloaded,) although it did need a little heat from that crazy, sour hot sauce of theirs.

        FYI: There's a valet for peak lunch and dinner hours. (Don't think I'd want to park on a side street at night.)
