CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio — New flavors are coming to Cleveland Heights this Thursday.

That's when MOJO World Eats is scheduled to open in the former Lopez location on Lee Road, according to its Facebook page.

Chef Michael Herschman shut Lopez down at the beginning of the year to focus on the revamped restaurant, which shifts from its former Mexican menu to more worldly offerings.

A sneak peek at the menu posted to the restaurant's new Facebook page includes a small offering of house cocktails accompanied by beer and a robust wine list.

MOJO's menu also hits hard on small plate offerings ranging from guacamole and little lamp chops to octopus tacos and raw oysters. Entrees include nightly steak, pasta and fish offerings along with seafood enchiladas, fajitas and burgers.

The restaurant is already taking reservations ahead of its Thursday opening.

Find MOJO World Eats at 2196 Lee Road.
