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, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.

“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.
