Tampa, Florida -- It was a packed house Tuesday night for the preview opening of Besito Mexican restaurant at Westshore Plaza.

10 News anchor Dion Lim and 10 Investigates Beau Zimmer had a chance to sample some of the upscale Mexican food.

Occupying the former Palm Restaurant space, this is the first Florida location for Besito, which has several eateries in New York and Connecticut.

Besito specializes in fresh ingredients and scratch-made items. Their signature appetizer is guacamole made in a volcanic rock vessel at tableside.

The night benefited the Pediatric Cancer Foundation, and raised $12,500.

The restaurant opens to the public Wednesday.
