As we reported earlier today, Citrus Restaurant will close Saturday, Jan. 28, after almost 10 years in business. Now we can also tell you that restaurateurs Jason and Sue Chin (Seito Sushi Baldwin Park, Osprey Tavern) will take over the space.

Their concept for the new restaurant is Reyes Mezcaleria, a Tulum-inspired restaurant specializing in regional Mexican cuisine and offering an extensive tequila and mezcal selection. Chef Austin Boyd will serve as executive chef of the restaurant. As for an opening date, Chin says he's shooting for the end of March if all goes according to plan and is on schedule. We recommend following Reyes Mezcaleria on Facebook or Instagram to keep up-to-date.



Former Citrus owner Craig Ustler of the Urban Life Management Restaurant Group will remain a minority partner, with the Chins as developer-operators and majority owners.
