Plywood Tracking: Casa Downtown

We popped on down the California Plaza this afternoon to see how Casa, the new Mexican spot from Mario Del Pero (partner in the nearby lunch-only Mendocino Farms) with chef Kris Morningstar helming the kitchen. Casa will be a "fast-casual" spot during the day, but sit-down, full-service restaurant at night. There were a lot of skeletons for circular booths for the patio, which will have its own outdoor bar and firepit, and a lot of curvy, cubby booths inside (designer is Ana Henton who's done Breadbar, Lemonade and Silverlake Wines among others). Morningstar, who's having quite the time eating Mexican food everywhere he can, says they hope to open in November.
