Look out La Reyna, there's another taco spot coming to the Arts District. Cerveteca, which already runs a couple of beer and taco outposts in Culver City and on Rose in Venice, is expanding onto 3rd Street downtown with their casual Mexican concept. The space formerly belonged to sushi restaurant R23, which had been in business since 1991 but closed for "renovations" at the beginning of the year.
The space sits between 2nd and 3rd along the remnants of an old rail line, filling the tall, airy brick room with long tables and some marble countertop in the back. There's a raw bar for ceviches, crudos and oysters, plus fish tacos, salads and a ribeye steak, among others, though beer is obviously a focus and a full bar is forthcoming.
Officially open on Friday, October 17, Cerveteca DTLA plans to softly serve this week.
