The major turn around for the Boulevard Mall continues with the debut of its first home-grown dining option, the 5,318-square-foot Olivia's Latin Cuisine Bar & Mariscos. With its own exterior entrance, Olivia's also offers patio dining, just inside the main side entrance of the mall.
Created by Faviola Trujillo, a force behind two local outposts of Taco Y Taco Mexican Eatery, Olivia's will place a strong emphasis on seafood dishes during lunch and dinner service. Over the large central bar sit multiple TVs, and Olivia's is encouraging new customers to head over to sample tequila, rums martinis during the day, an activity few would have considered before the $25 million upgrades by Roland Sansone and his Sansone Companies, who salvaged the declining mall in 2014 for $54.5 million.
While the full menu has yet to be announced, guests have been promised tequila, ceviche, chuleta de puerco and shrimp campechana. Olivia's is open for lunch from 11 a.m to 4 p.m. daily expect Sundays. Dinner service begins at 4 until 11 p.m. and later until 1 a.m on Friday and Saturday.
