Three Restaurants Replacing Clarendon’s La Tasca Now Set for Early 2019 Opening

Work is picking up steam on the trio of new restaurants moving into the space once occupied by La Tasca in Clarendon, with its owner targeting a partial opening a few months from now.

Street Guys Hospitality, the group backing Clarendon’s Ambar and Baba, is now hard at work on construction for the new eateries: Tacos, Tortas and Tequila on the first floor, Buena Vida on the second and a rooftop bar to cap things off. The group opened the former two Mexican eateries in Bethesda earlier this year.

Lindley Richardson, a spokeswoman for Street Guys, told ARLnow that owner Ivan Iricanin is targeting February 2019 for TTT and Buena Vida’s grand opening.

She added that the rooftop space will open “at a later date,” noting that it currently does not have a name — Iricanin previously told other media outlets that it would be dubbed “Up.”

Meanwhile, county permit records show that Iricanin’s company won county permission for some interior demolition work on all three floors of the building in August, with work continuing in the weeks since. Iricanin also plans to bring a new Ambar location to Northwest D.C. next year, his second in the city.

La Tasca closed back in March, after spending roughly 14 years serving Clarendon diners.
