Hibiscus Taking Over Former North End Space in Columbus Park

New Mexican restaurant plans to open in popular Columbus Park location
A new concept in Mexican cuisine is coming soon to Fifth Street in historic Columbus Park in the former North End restaurant space.

In under four weeks, partners Perry Jordan and Kevin Hill have brought on local restaurateur and consultant Katee McLean to bring their ideas to life – including a creative menu and colorful cocktails – and began renovating the space.
...
Construction is moving fast in the restaurant space, flipping it from dark wood, faux brick and bar lit with the colors of the Italian flag to a space more reflective of its new name: Hibiscus.
...
While the partners say they’ve secured a liquor license for Hibiscus, their drink menu will be a far cry from the shot machines at the North End.

“We’re not trying to focus on the bar aspect of it, we’re going to have much higher end, more expensive cocktails,” Jordan said. “It’s a restaurant with drinks, not a bar with food.”
...
If everything goes as planned, they’ll open Hibiscus in April. They plan to be open Friday through Sunday in the beginning, and once they’re confident in their menu and have a full staff, they’ll open six days a week.

I was hoping that the plant hibiscus was overgrowing and that people could stop by and harvest leaves for making tea.

If you planted a hibiscus there, it would be overgrown because there is no other activity on this site.

Or maybe it would be dead, like this concept is.

Looking forward to trying this. KC does a pretty good job representing food from many states of Mexico, more than other cities I've noticed. Will be interesting to see menu.
