      Old World taste meets New World appeal at Cascal. This vibrant restaurant concept brings the traditions of Spain, with its savory flavors and warm hospitality, together with the exotic culture of Latin America--the land of sexy cocktails, music, and epicurean delights. Don Durante

      Creator Don Durante, whose past successes include the award winning Le Mouton Noir, and the Silicon Valley icon, Birk's, wanted to create a restaurant where he himself would enjoy spending an evening lingering with friends over exotic cocktails and enticing foods with bold flavors and personality.

      The idea of Cascal came to him some time ago while tasting many of the dishes the kitchen staff of his various restaurants would cook for themselves. These authentic tastes inspired the ''Tapa'' style menu of small bites and communal sharing. The idea was nurtured during a brief retirement and after the perfect location was found, Cascal became a reality.

      To bring the concept to life, Don worked with Executive Chef Antonio Flores Lopez to develop the menu for Cascal. The tastes and flavors that make up the menu begin their journey in Spain and continue into the New World of South America and Mexico. To enhance the dining scene, Don sought out award winning Designer/Architect, Chuck Thompson who has designed over ninety restaurants, including; Boulevard, San Francisco, The Red Car, Los Angeles, University Cafe in Palo Alto and the Village Cafe in Santana Row. Cascal's unique interior, with its elegant, yet casual atmosphere of bold colors, expansive bar, and rustic chandelier.
