Flores Cocina + Bar and Flores Taqueria

Bay Street continues its dining terrace refresh with the Nov. 3 grand opening of colorful, modern, sit-down Mexican restaurant Flores (on the heels of last week’s soft launch of adjacent, grab-and-go counter spot Flores Taqueria). The Emeryville opening, complete with roomy indoor and outdoor seating and a spacious full bar, marks the third Flores location for restaurant group Back of the House, Inc., owned by Bay Area restaurateur Adriano Paganini (Super Duper Burger, Corzetti, Wildseed). Signature offerings include handmade masa (used throughout the menu, including tacos) and Mexican-style seafood and ceviche, as well as a range of small-batch tequilas and mezcals. The restaurant opens Nov. 3; next-door Flores Taqueria, already open, offers a simple take-out menu of flavorful tacos, burritos, bowls and salads. Flores Cocina + Bar and Flores Taqueria, 5614 Bay St. (Suite 244, Second Level), Emeryville
