ejs1492 Jul 2, 2008 09:47 AM

Does anyone know if Mexican Standoff, the new Kasperski venture at Southbridge, has opened yet?

    I don't believe so. Seftel had an article in the Rep about various new restaurants last week:

      I was at Cowboy Ciao last week and they were saying *maybe* sometime in August.

        What's the concept of this place, again?

          Their concept apparently involves being politically incorrect -- de rigeur on the "Waterfront."

            You know, that is not all bad, provided that the food is great. Chef Bernie probably has some tricks up his sleeve. Cannot wait, but hope that Perer remembers my comments on the db levels.

            Mexican Standoff - Mexican/Latin American fare with a refined twist from restaurateur Peter Kasperski (Cowboy Ciao, Sea Saw, Digestif) and chef Bernie Kantak at SouthBridge in downtown Scottsdale. Opening: summer.

              no answer at (what I think is) their number: 480-421-9463 (480-421-WINE) and the website doesn't appear to have gone live yet.

                An email failed to the contact on the page but I've emailed the admin contact - we'll see if I get a timely response.

                I was at SouthBridge last week and it looks like it may still be awhile. Still roughly finished, and I didn't see any opening date posted.

                  They can't be open. The website says Summer 2008, and if they were open, that would mean they were on time. That never happens.

                  I don't think a Kasperski operation is going to open without mainstream press coverage within the first week, if not the first day.
