DC-dwelling fans of the Arlington-based taco truck and restaurant District Taco will be glad to know that the restaurant's second brick-and-mortar location in downtown DC is now finally open, open, open. Having thrown open its doors at 7 a.m. today serving their breakfast tacos, District Taco noted this morning that they might not have a lot of seating, "but we have a lot of tacos!"
Our friends at Curbed got a look inside the new Washington space that's designed to look like something you might find on the streets of Mexico rather than on F Street NW near the Treasury building and H&M. So there's a corrugated metal roof over the food prep station, bottle caps covering the nuts and bolts and Mexican newspapers covering walls in the bathrooms. Expect the same menu of tacos, burritos, quesadillas and more found over at the Arlington location — and more locations opening in the future.
