After more than two years of construction, Tres Chiles finally opened on Tennyson Street this week. The Mexican restaurant has slowly been taking shape from what was once a two-story brick home. Across town, Mario's Ocean Club took only two months to get the doors open in the former home of Chowder Room on South Broadway. While the menu is almost entirely the work of owner Mario Vega, a nod to the previous tenant can be found in the clam chowder, the original recipe from Chowder Room's chef, Matt Stein.
