Otro Cinco, an offshoot of Alto Cinco, opened for business in Syracuse on Thursday.
Owner Johanna Yorke, who opened Alto Cinco -- which translates to "high five" -- in the mid-1990s at 526 Westcott Street, took over the space at 226 South Warren Street that was home to the Middle Eastern restaurant Red Rose Diner until earlier this year.
Like her other restaurant, the 160-seat Otro Cinco -- which translates to "another five" -- will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner on weekdays and lunch and dinner on Saturdays.
Many of its menu items will be the same as the original Cinco, including her popular catfish burritos as well as a variety of quesadillas and burritos. It also is featuring tacos with tortillas made from non-GMO organic white corn, with such fillings as lobster, tofu and fish.
Chef Carl Helgersen, however, has gone far beyond the usual Mexican/Spanish foods to offer made-to-order paellas and a variety if tapas such as mussels, crispo sardines, octopus and clams in green sauce, garlic shrimp, and olives and goat cheese.
Otro Cinco has a full bar license.
