Hermosillo Brings Craft Brews, Wine to Highland Park Tonight

Dustin Lancaster isn't running the show at Hermosillo, a new craft beer and wine bar that soft opens on in Highland Park tonight, but the Bar Covell and L&E Oyster Bar owner did help design the space. And maybe consult a little on the drink menus. He's partnered with Ross Stephenson and Michael Blackman, the co-owners who took over the seedy space (Blackman works at Covell). It depends who you ask about how beloved the original was: Some went there for the, ahem, local color and cheap Mexican beer; others thought it was a bruise on the block. Either way, gentrification seems to win again.

Lancaster said they kept a Latin theme to the place, just spruced it up a bit. Even the wines hail from Mexico and South America; the beers are more of the local, craft variety. Think Bar Covell, just maybe a tad grittier. Hermosillo is located at 5125 York Blvd., and will be open until 2 AM daily.
