Downtown Orlando’s Kasa Rebranding as Chela Tequila & Tacos

Downtown Orlando’s Kasa Restaurant & Bar, formerly located at 183 S. Orange Street in the Cobb Plaza Center, is changing names and menus this month. The once popular tapas restaurant and brunch spot opened back in 2013 under the guidance of Food Network’s reality TV contestant Josh Lyons and was operated by Avenue Gastrobar‘s owner, Bento Group.

Kasa closed for remodeling and employee retraining following New Year’s Eve festivities on December 31st 2017 and will reopen January 23rd 2018 as Chela Tequila and Tacos.

Manager Rodrigo Solis confirms that the former tapas spot will be adopting an upscale Mexican-inspired menu. Some of Kasa’s menu items will remain, such as the Kasa corn, but otherwise there will be an entirely new selection of dishes, confirmed Solis.

Current Kasa Orlando gift certificate holders can redeem their certificates at Chela upon its opening.

Chela will also continue Kasa’s weekly Unwine’d Wednesday and Bubbles ‘n’ Brunch weekend events. A soft opening is rumored to be possible the week of January 15th. Keep an eye out for further opening information on their website.
