This month Mexican Sugar will open its third location, this one in the heart of Uptown at 2355 Olive St. in the McKinney & Olive complex. It will sit at the opposite end from Del Frisco’s, with Starbucks and the new Leela’s Wine Bar, among others, in between.

Mexican Sugar is a pan-Latin restaurant offering dishes made from scratch and prepared with authentic ingredients and traditional cooking methods. The restaurant opened in 2013 in Plano and in 2020 added a location in Las Colinas. The menu focuses on Mexico City cuisine.

The restaurant’s two-story, 12,000-square-foot space will provide seating for 400 margarita-sipping guests. The upstairs patio will offer a view of the American Airlines Center and the Hotel Crescent Court.

Mexican Sugar will offer an experiential Agave Library for tequila enthusiasts, with more than 150 tequilas and mezcals complementing the food menu. Highlights include handcrafted margaritas, agave-tasting flights and a selection of wines.
