There's a new member of the ever-growing Harwood International restaurant family, coming to the Harwood District near Uptown Dallas — this time with a Latin flair.

Called Te Deseo, it's a new restaurant with a street address of 2700 Olive St. that will feature the "bold flavors of Latin American-inspired cocktails and cuisine."

A representative for Harwood said that details of the menu were not available, but the tentative opening date is sometime during the summer. The cuisine will be high end, and the restaurant will aspire to be one of the future landmarks of Dallas Latin cuisine, with authentic flair and a fun-filled bar.

"Te Deseo" is Spanish for "I want."

According to a building permit, it'll be a two-story restaurant spanning "thousands of square feet" of beautiful design, with a blend of indoor and outdoor dining space, four bars, and a stunning rooftop overlooking the city.

The nightlife element will be a major component. A help wanted ad predicts that "Te Deseo will be an enticing dining destination and a see-and-be-seen location with irresistible energy lasting well into the night." Will there be salsa? Surely there will be salsa.

Te Deseo will be the eighth restaurant in the Harwood District family. Their hugely successful restaurant portfolio is designed to provide a variety of culinary experiences and cuisines, and includes Saint Ann Restaurant and Bar, Mercat Bistro, Happiest Hour, Dolce Rivera, the Grove at Harwood, Magnolias: Sous Le Pont, and the original, Marie Gabrielle Restaurant & Gardens.

Latin is one cuisine the portfolio did not have. Soon that will not be the case.
