New Pop-Up Restaurant Offers Fine Dining to Plaza Theatre Patrons and Downtown Attendees May 2, 2017

In celebration of The Phantom of the Opera coming to the border town, El Paso Live and Visit El Paso proudly host Mesa Street Grill at the Plaza Theatre beginning Friday, May 5, 2017. The new Pop-Up Restaurant features Broadway-themed décor, a decadent three-course dining experience and five star service by Mesa Street Grill.

Mesa Street Grill at the Plaza, located in the Plaza Theatre’s restaurant space at 125 Pioneer Plaza, will be temporarily ‘masked’ to marry the theme of El Paso Electric’s Broadway in El Paso 2 week run of The Phantom of the Opera.

Restaurant patrons may choose from several options for each course. An example meal would begin with a Grilled Peach Salad, Halibut Steak with seasonal vegetables and peewee potatoes, and ending sweetly with Gelato 4-way. A full-service bar will pour fine wines, beers, spirits, coffee and non-alcoholic beverages.

“This Pop-Up restaurant was designed to generate even more excitement about The Phantom of the Opera shows and create the ultimate dining experience for Broadway in El Paso show-goers. However, all of El Paso is invited to enjoy a taste of Mesa Street Grill at the Plaza Theatre and watch the magic of the restaurant come to life in a new light,” said Ryan Lympus, Assistant General Manager of El Paso Live.

The restaurant will be open Friday, May 5, Saturday, May 6 and the following weekend, Thursday, May 11, Friday, May 12, and host its final evening on Saturday, May 13.

Reservations are available beginning Tuesday, May 2 and can be placed through Mesa Street Grill at 915-532-1881. Seating begins 2 hours before The Phantom of the Opera performance times (approximately 6 PM) and reservations are welcomed up to 1 hour before scheduled curtain time (approximately 7:30 PM) each evening and offers limited seating. All party sizes are welcomed. It is recommended to arrive early to allow time for parking.

The atmosphere suggests a formal dress code. No outside food, beverages or pets are allowed.
