Chef Jonathan Lundy announced that his new Latin-inspired restaurant, Corto Lima, will be open for business on Wednesday.
Last September, Lundy -- one of Lexington’s best-known chefs who most recently helmed the now closed Coba Cocina -- announced plans for the new restaurant at the high-profile corner of Short and North Limestone streets.
Lundy said the restaurant, at 101 W. Short Street, will serve “affordable and innovated Latin cuisine.”
TJ Cox – who served as general manager and beverage dirctor at Lundy’s restaurant Jonathan at Gratz Park, and also as sommelier and beverage director Coba Cocina – is also on board. For Corto Lima, Cox is following the food with a focus on tequila and rum, plus Spanish and South American wines.
Corto Lima will be open for lunch and dinner Wednesdays through Mondays from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., with extended hours Fridays and Saturdays until midnight.
