Welcome to the barrio

Renovating for late night tapas

According to Wade Smith’s blog, (he’s the new owner of the former “Storkland” furniture building on the 2200 block of 2nd Avenue North), the guys over at one of our favorite restaurants, Trattoria Centrale, plan to open El Barrio, a latin/taco-inspired restaurant to complement the fantastic Italian fare they’re serving on 20th Street. El Barrio will be open for lunch and dinner with outdoor seating. Stay tuned for more details.

Update: Read more about the project in the News article here.

This is the sort of local, high quality, creative development we’re all excited about. And a great tonic at the end of the week. Salud!

    This is great!

  3. !!!YAY!!!
    Hey- let’s find people like this to flood the governing structure of the city with. :~D

    Don’t you know of any like-minded developers to bring them here and show them around? That’s what the new BJCC Entertainment area needs (and a new name).

    • Yes! Exactly. Big corporate-type projects aren’t easily swayed by the grass-roots, indie-model we’ve got going on at 2nd Row and adjacent. But it sure would be nice!


  5. Thanks for the mention, Jeremy!
