More tasty treats for your holiday stocking: Chino Chinatown and Amberjax, two new restos in Trinity Groves, to open in two weeks


In the biggest restaurant news all year, two new restaurants in the Trinity Groves development will open to the public the week of December 16.

“Sometime that week, we’ll open both Chino and Amberjax,” a Trinity Groves insider who knows such things told me today.

Amberjax, a casual seafood restaurant, is the brainchild of Rex’s Seafood veterans Karen and Larry Williams. “When you walk into Amberjax you’re going to feel like you’re at your sister’s house,” Karen Williams says here.

Chino Chinatown, with Uno Immanivon as its top chef, will offer an Asian-fusion-street food menu that evokes the flavor of a  “Latin Chinatown.”

Chino and Amberjax join a handful of other restaurants that have already opened in the incubator development, including Casa Rubia and Hatch-favorite, Resto Gastro Pub.
