Chattanooga-based Taco Mamacita will expand its restaurant-bar concept to Nashville with the scheduled December launch in Edgehill Village, in the location of the now-shuttered Rosario's Mexican Restaurant. The second location of the Tex-Mex restaurant will serve a rotating roster of healthy-minded "funky fusion tacos" for lunch and dinner.
Owners Michael and Taylor Monen have brought on Chad Phillips as owner/operator for the Nashville store, and the team is thoroughly redesigning the space, tearing out walls, eliminating the existing mezzanine and creating an indoor/outdoor bar area that ties in with the round patio. Demolition is slated to start at the end of September.
In addition to tacos, enchiladas and guacamole, Taco Mamacita serves chicken tortilla soup--assembled tableside--and Peruvian chicken made in a rotisserie. Sauces, dressings and drink mixers are made in house, with fresh local produce when available.
The bar will stock 40 tequilas and a selection of Mexican beer.
