sansalvajeLet’s talk about San Salvaje, the new restaurant coming from Chef Stephan Pyles. San Salvaje, which translates to “wild saints,” will open in the former Samar space on Ross in downtown Dallas on April 28.

According to a release, San Salvaje “celebrates the union of pagan indigenous culture with a host of saints revered in Latin America.” So this ain’t some Tex-Mex business, sirs and ladies. An included description calls the new spot “a casual, high-energy restaurant inspired by the cuisines and cultures of Mexico, Central & South America, the Caribbean and Cuba.”

I, for one, will be getting my Shakira hips ready.

Chef Pyles has recently traveled through South America, and was obviously inspired to reinvent the former Samar space completely. I’m looking forward to what he’s come up with. The cocktails sound particularly intriguing, specifically the “Chicha Morada, a Peruvian drink made from purple corn, pineapple and spices.” Hey-o!

He’s also promoting Alex Astranti, who is currently the sous at Stampede 66, to executive chef at San Salvaje. Considering the quality Stampede 66 turns out, that’s a very good sign.

Looking forward to hearing more about San Salvaje, hopefully some peeks at the menu!
