Frontera Fresco, the quick-serve Mexican restaurant, will open 8 a.m. Friday in Norris University Center.

Norris announced the opening date on Twitter this morning, also posting a picture of the finalized space with a Frontera Fresco sign.

Frontera Fresco was originally set to open in late October, but construction setbacks caused delays to the grand opening, said Steve Mangan, resident district manager of nuCuisine, earlier this month. Another Norris official chalked up the late opening to the process of obtaining the necessary permits from Evanston.

NuCuisine had planned to have on hand Frontera Fresco owner and renowned Chicago chef Rick Bayless for the official unveiling. Norris’ tweet did not say whether Bayless will attend Friday’s opening.
