Our neighborhood’s longstanding Tex-Mex restaurant Tupinamba has finally opened in its new location at the southwest corner of Walnut Hill and Central, just across from Preston Hollow Village. We featured Tupinamba in our October 2014 story, “Dang, that place is still there?”.

It’s still in the neighborhood, but it’s a bit of trek for those used to visiting the restaurant in the Jesuit-owned Summertree shopping center on Inwood where it had operated since 1996. The shopping center also houses Picasso’s and Village Burger Bar.

So, what’s taking Tupinamba’s place there? Councilwoman Jennifer Staubach Gates informed neighbors at a Schreiber Volunteer Neighborhood Association meeting last night that Jesuit plans to break the space up for possibly two new restaurants. No leases have been signed.

Speaking of Tex-Mex, there’s a great little spot, Gabriela’s & Sofia’s, that recently opened off Meadow and Central.
