Highly-anticipated Mexican restaurant Pancito & Lefty takes over the bar and kitchen at Huger Street hideout Faculty Lounge on Thursday, November 19. The upcoming eatery has served samples at a number of events lately, but this will be the public's first chance to try a portion of the offerings without a ticket price attached. Chef Robert Berry and team recently traveled to Mexico for a research trip, so they are probably eager to share what they learned. Attendees can order plates for $5 and cocktails for $8.
Construction on the restaurant space, at 708 King St., picked up in the past week, so things are moving forward. Pancito & Lefty is scheduled to open this fall.
