The Caribbean restaurant will replace the 13-year-old TC’s Rib Crib at the Global Plaza West retail center on Durango Drive, between Spring Mountain Road and Twain Avenue. Rib Crib owner Sharon Harrell died earlier this year.
The compact 100 Fires space will act as combination restaurant and coffee bar when it debuts on January 1.
The Caribbean-inspired menu served at lunch and dinner will be overseen by chef Montserrat Soberano, whose resume includes a stint as executive chef at The Smashed Pig on downtown's Fremont East.
Now referring to its breakfast and lunch residency at The Lakes as a “pop up,” the revamped menu will include nods to Latin, Cuban, and Puerto Rican favorites and also create a new cocktail collection, previewed to include a Jamaican Negroni, the Barbados Bumbu Rum-based Pain Killer, and a classic Coquito.
