Exclusive first look: Ay Caramba! opens in Cherry Creek
And it's all served in a two-level space that bears little resemblance to Bisque. The bones are still in place, but the downstairs is far less formal, with weathered wooden tables, exposed brick, chocolate brown "cowboy" leather banquettes, a community table, black-and-white prints depicting south-of-the-border street scenes, original Mexican skull art and a kaleidoscopic chalkboard scribbled with tequilas.
The upstairs back bar exposes a glass-tiled dome that loosely mimics a fountain, underneath which are ten tap handles; an additional fifteen beers by the bottle, plus cocktails and two wines are also featured. Gurevich hopes that the bar will become a regular happy hour hangout, and considering he's offering happy hour from 2 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, it's bound to be a popular breeding ground for the margarita and cerveza crowd.
"What I really want is to bring some fun to Cherry Creek," says Gurevich, who will also deliver tortas on a trike to the Cherry Creek neighborhood.
Ay Caramba! is open seven days a week (the kitchen is open until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights), and breakfast tortas are served on the weekend, beginning at 9 a.m.
