En Fuego to be revived at south Tulsa site
Tara and Greg Hughes, owners of the In the Raw restaurants, have announced they will bring back En Fuego, an upscale Mexican eatery they operated in Brookside from 2002 to 2005.
Greg Hughes said a three-story former office building across the parking lot from In the Raw South, 6151 S. Sheridan Road, will be torn down, and En Fuego will be constructed on that site.
"I always regretted closing En Fuego in Brookside," Greg Hughes said. "I didn't stick with it quite long enough.
"We will bring back many of the old favorite dishes from En Fuego, and because we are on a hill out here, the new restaurant will have a rooftop bar. We also will have more parking to serve both restaurants."
Hughes said he hopes to get the new En Fuego open by next spring.
