Richmond BizSense Reporting Takeout Tacos Taking Over Naked Onion Spot
Good news for lovers of the taco. If you don’t love the taco, I don’t know if we can be friends.
In these uncertain dining times, it’s good news to see a new take-out option opening up.
TBT El Gallo, an upstart Mexican takeout concept, plans to take over the space in October.
TBT refers to the restaurant’s mainstay menu items: tacos, burritos and tortas. El Gallo, which means the rooster in Spanish, is the family nickname of owner Carlos Ordaz-Nunez. He picked it up thanks to a particularly bad childhood haircut.
“Richmond still needs a (a place for) very traditional Mexican-inspired tacos,” he said.
If you can’t wait to try the menu follow TBT El Gallo on Facebook. They are often hosting pop-ups around town and Facebook will keep in you the know.
Charlottesville-based Grit Coffee opens first Richmond location at Libbie and Grove
Drawing on a love of coffee as well as cooking, Grit takes a culinary approach to roasting. As would a chef, Grit’s Director of Coffee, Travis Mason, views the quality and freshness of the ingredients as paramount.
Amid an incredibly difficult year for the restaurant industry, Grit Coffee, the Charlottesville-based coffee shop and brand, opened its first Richmond location in the Libbie-Grove corridor this past Thursday.
In what was previously a Sweet Frog at 409 Libbie Avenue, Grit Coffee opened with options for carry-out and online ordering of coffee drinks, ground, and whole bean coffee, as well as pastries from Pearl’s Bake Shoppe. Owners say they hope to provide an approachable, relaxing environment to enjoy a good cup of coffee – especially after the nearby Starbucks on the corridor closed its doors.
Founded in 2008, Grit currently has five locations in Charlottesville, a thriving wholesale network through the state, and a coffee subscription service that has taken off since March.
Drawing on a love of coffee as well as cooking, Grit takes a culinary approach to roasting. As would a chef, Grit’s Director of Coffee, Travis Mason, views the quality and freshness of the ingredients as paramount. But equally important – and often overlooked in coffee – is the roasting, akin to how a chef might cook his ingredients to coax out the inherent and unique characteristics of each coffee.
