Kent Harman’s Bandito Latin Kitchen & Cantina makes its debut today in a 4,000-square-foot space in the Hughes Center. Inside, customers can find a mix of rustic and modern decor, including finished metals, hand-distressed woods and bright colors, all lit with natural light that fills the restaurant through its 30-foot tall glass windows.
At the front of the restaurant, customers find a hand-pressed tortilla station anchoring the open kitchen. A rectangular bar features distressed butcher-block counters, hand-laid tile and a 30-foot steel shelving structure that houses the liquor and a pair of 60-inch television sets.
Local artist Brett Rosepiler created two huge murals of “Bandito” and “Rosie” in the main dining room that seats 150 in the cantina and dining room, and also on its outdoor patio.
Take a look around.
