How wise is it to open a taco and tequila joint in between the venerable Hugo’s and the mega-Mex El Real on a restaurant rich stretch of Westheimer?
Very, if you’re Shawn Bermudez, owner of the new Pistolero’s Mexican restaurant in Montrose. The retailer/restaurateur had eyed other locations for his new restaurant/bar concept but when the space formerly occupied by Nabi came available, he threw his sombrero in the ring. The result is an eye-catching and sophisticated tribute to agave juice and corn tortilla glories.
“This is a perfect fit on so many levels,” Bermudez said. “I live in the neighborhood and I want to draw attention to Montrose.”
