ACT ONE

Terras Urban Mexican Kitchen established in 2016 under three driving forces: local, unique, and community. 

 

In 2014, co-founders Christian Nevarez (Head Chef) and Juan Flores (Bar Manager) met working at a local restaurant. They shared a vision of creating a unique culinary and craft cocktail experience in Brownsville, Texas.  They set up shop on Elizabeth St. in Historic Downtown Brownsville. Within a year of opening, Juan, Christian, and their staff brought a unique dining experience to Downtown Brownsville with creations like the Shrimp Molcajete, Pineapple Moscow Mule, Ribeye Mole, and Sangre de Azteca.

Eat. Drink. Talk. Laugh!

In 2019, Juan and Christian partnered with local entrepreneurs Gus Holmes and Robert Escobedo with one goal in mind, to continue providing a unique dining experience to a broader audience in a beautiful historic building in Downtown Brownsville.

 

In 2020, Terras Urban Mexican Kitchen opened its door at 1212 E. Washington St. The building features a beautiful industrial bar and a spacious dining area. The Terras team plans to add a bakery and coffee shop in the same building as part of the overall experience. 

We can't wait to see you at our new location.
