Next door to Camino there’s a brand new Mexican restaurant called Destino (3909 Grand Avenue), from chef Marisol del Rio and the owner of the former Somerset, Gary Rizzo. The menu is here, and they opened on Saturday, and they open daily at 4 p.m. Del Rio says her food isn’t strictly Mexican, per se, but is just the food she likes to cook eat, and she’s been catering around the Bay Area for five years after coming here from central Mexico, where she taught at a cooking school. Note: Destino has a full bar and cocktail list too. [East Bay Dish]
