Charras & Tequila, a new Mexican restaurant, will be built in north Bismarck.
David Mendoza opened a location in Devils Lake two years ago. He’s operated restaurants for nine years and has worked in the restaurant industry for 20 years.
Now he’s expanding to Bismarck-Mandan. He plans to build on the lot south of Dunn Brother Brothers Coffee in the spring. Mendoza said he likes the neighborhood and thinks it will be good for the concept he has in mind.
Charras & Tequila will feature an open kitchen with bar top seating that allows diners to watch their food being prepared. The menu will feature higher-end items, such as fajitas and grilled meats and seafood served in molcajete dishes, stone dishes made from volcanic rock.
The restaurant will have a full bar and seating for 120 to 130 people.
Mendoza said he hopes to be open in August.
The restaurant will be open for dinner from 4 to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 4 to 11 p.m. Friday. Saturday and Sunday will have lunch hours, opening 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.
Sports card, memorabilia shop open
The Sports Cave is a store specializing in sports and gaming cards.
Owner Chris Magstadt got into trading cards when he was 17 and has been at it for 27 years.
“I’m a Twins fan,” he said.
And he likes University of North Carolina Tar Heels college basketball. James Worthy was his favorite player.
Magstadt wanted to share that love and give sports card enthusiasts a place of their own in Bismarck. He opened his shop at 2906 Morrison Ave., behind Sam’s Club, a couple weeks ago.
The Sports Cave will sell memorabilia, including autographed Carson Wentz mini helmets and jerseys and autographed photos of Michael Jordan and Lebron James. And “every aspect of the card world,” offering protective holders and consignment services.
“Basically anything sports,” Magstadt said.
Magstadt said he will host card shows in the large back room — the first one being Saturday — and 22- to 26-table tournaments.
Hours for the shop are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
