San Antonio's Arcade Midtown Kitchen, the new venture from chef Jesse Perez and one of Eater's Most Anticipated Openings of 2013, opens today in the historic Pearl Brewery. Chef Perez's menu (see below) serves "Americana cuisine" with Latin flavors and a touch of Mediterranean influence. Think meatballs served on top of hummus, mussels doused in a citrusy habanero broth, and and a house-aged ribeye served with ranchero sauce. The space is open, with windows overlooking the 19th century Pearl Brewhouse and a bar that serves drinkers indoors on one side and outside on the other. Even the decor references the building's past, with light fixtures made from old beer cases.
