Taqueria La Ventana, the funky taqueria concept offering everyday Mexican street food which currently has a successful downtown Dallas location, has announced it will be expanding in 2015 with two new locations. Specific dates for the openings will be released in the near future.
Taqueria La Ventana has recently signed a lease at the Dallas Farmers Market in The Market, in the heart of downtown Dallas. Scheduled to open in early summer 2015, the restaurant will offer 21 indoor seats as well as 28 seats on the outdoor patio. It will be one of the four anchor restaurants in The Market, which will also offer additional seating in a common dining area. Approximately 20 to 25 employees will be hired for this new location.
In addition, Addison will soon welcome Taqueria La Ventana to 4180 Beltline Road. The 2,344 square foot restaurant and bar will seat 60 guests while the 945 square foot al fresco patio will offer seating for 32 diners. It will share the real estate site with a sister Firebird Restaurant Group concept, Snuffer’s Restaurant & Bar. The company will hire between 30 to 35 employees for the Addison site.
The original downtown location, located adjacent to the award-winning Meso Maya, has a walk up window and outdoor seating only. Guests can pick up tacos to go or enjoy dining in the Taqueria La Ventana garden at hand-crafted iron tables and benches.
“The success of our downtown Taqueria La Ventana and guests’ love of the fast casual dining concept impressed on us the importance of expanding this concept. There is exciting energy and growth throughout the north Texas region. The renewal of the Dallas Farmers Market as well as the growth in and around Addison appeared to be two perfect locations for this initial expansion,” said Mike Karns, CEO, Firebird Restaurant Group, which operates Taqueria La Ventana along with three other successful, award-winning concepts including El Fenix, Meso Maya and Snuffer’s Restaurant & Bar, with 32 locations in two states.
