JAMES CITY-A new Mexican restaurant has been added to the list of restaurant offerings in New Town.

El Patio opened at the end of February on Courthouse Street in New Town near the Regal Cinema. John Harrell and his wife, Renee, are owners of the new establishment.

The restaurant offers traditional Mexican fare including tacos, burritos, chimichangas, and enchiladas. There are also seafood options as well as vegetarian options.

Diners can enjoy their meals inside or outside.

El Patio replaces another Mexican restaurant, El Tapatio, which closed in 2019.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
