Late last year, Watertown's La Casa de Pedro starting making moves to expand to Boston's Seaport District. The Latin American restaurant, which occupies a large, colorful space near Branch Line, has been open for nearly 20 years and features big portions, live music, and fun cocktails (including nine variations on a mojito).

The new location (505 Congress St., inside the fancy Waterside Place apartment building) is now officially aiming for a summer 2016 opening, according to a press release from the building's management company, Bozzuto. The restaurant will span 10,000 square feet on the ground floor and serve lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch from chef/owner Pedro Alarcon.

The menu draws inspiration from Alarcon's native Venezuela and beyond and offers a mix of tapas and larger entrees — a big variety of hearty meat- and seafood-based dishes that each come with several sides. Live music — a staple at the Watertown location — will take place at the Seaport location as well.

Keep an eye on the new location's Facebook page for updates as the opening approaches.
