Ballston has been eagerly awaiting its second restaurant from Mike Isabella. This one's Mexican, housed in the same building as his successful Kapnos Taverna. Here are a few more reveals about the place:

*The patio will have 44 seats, which is even more seating than what they'll have inside (32 seats).

*There will be about 15 total dishes from chef Adam Howard, including ceviche, elote and a Mexican-style Caesar salad.

*Expect even more drinks than food, with 35 drinks on the cocktail list, many of them starring tequila and mezcal. Others will be Mexican spins on classics — ever wanted to try a Mexican negroni?

*There will be boozy push-pops.

*Happy hour will run all day and night, with the specials constantly changing.

*Opening date is set for July 30.
