Eater%20Fall%20Tracking_200%208-15-12.jpgQuite stealthily, Javier's has been building out its new location at Aria, taking over the former Union Restaurant space on the casino floor. Now it looks like the Mexican joint out of Orange County is just about ready to open. Originally, it pegged a May debut, then radio silence hit the airways.

Now the plywood walls are down and in their place, a surprisingly massive restaurant dominating the entire side of Aria.
Moorish windows look in on the sprawling restaurant. At the center, a monstrously huge curved bar that mesmerizes gamblers as they walk by and dominates the space. Black leather booths hug the outside while white stucco coats the walls.

Inside, carved wood and sheaths of beads reminiscent of a chandelier create eye-catching design elements. Whites and blacks with occasional amber highlights pepper the interior.

And still no word on the official opening date. The Aria website still says coming soon.

Javier's claims to have the largest selection of premium tequilas in Orange County. Look for regionally influenced home-style Mexican cooking when it does open.
