It looks like the restaurant group behind Barcelona Wine Bar is already planning its second concept in D.C. A Craigslist job posting says that Bartaco—”upscale street food with a coastal vibe”—is coming to the District this summer. The small plates restaurant combines Asian in Mediterranean flavors in Mexican cuisine, with menu items like wild boar, curry shrimp, and falafel tacos.
It’s unclear if or where Bartaco has a lease.* The restaurant has three locations in Connecticut and another in Port Chester, NY. The restaurant group’s spokeswoman was out of the office, but we’ll update with any more details when we have them.
*UPDATE: The restaurant’s spokeswoman Ria Rueda says Bartaco will be located in Reston Town Center.
