Jacksonville restaurateur Al Mansur has chosen which of his restaurant concepts to open at the closed South Kitchen & Spirits restaurant he bought last fall in South Avondale.

Mansur, through Avondale Dining LLC, filed the name “Iguana on Park” with the state Feb. 18.

“We will be moving forward with the Flying Iguana concept,” Mansur said by email Feb. 21. “The new sister restaurant will be called Iguana on Park.”

The restaurant describes its menu as a fusion of Latin American cuisine that also features creative cocktails, tequilas and craft beers.

Yesssss....  8)
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

I really used to like South Kitchen and was sad to see it closed, but I like Flying Iguana even better! It'll be sweet to have a location closer than waaaaaay out at Atlantic Beach.

Great addition. What an embarrassment of food riches R/A has these days. Flying Iguana is one of my favorite restaurants in Jax.

Very excited.  South Kitchen did a really nice job with a building.  Too bad it didn't work out.  When they started out, the food was good.

South Kitchen has a weird vibe.  One of those things you couldn't put your finger on.  Wasn't surprised it closed.
