Two of the three restaurants moving into the space formerly occupied by La Tasca in Clarendon now expect to open their doors later this month.
The TTT Mexican Diner and Buena Vida, set to occupy the first and second floors of the building at 2900 Wilson Blvd, are now set to open on March 18.
Street Guys Hospitality, the restaurant group backing Clarendon’s Ambar and Baba, laid out menu details and released concept photos of the new restaurants in a release yesterday (Thursday). The group had previously targeted a February opening for the space.
Owner Ivan Iricanin has been hard at work on the new eateries since last April, shortly after La Tasca closed its doors following a 14-year run in the neighborhood. He’s also planning a rooftop bar on the building’s third level, though he’s not expecting that to open for a while yet.
On the first floor, Street Guys says that the TTT Mexican Diner — initially dubbed “Tacos, Tortas and Tequila” — will feature 86 dining rooms seats across a 3,500-square-foot space. It will also include a bar area and a 30-seat outdoor patio.
The restaurant will serve brunch, lunch and dinner, and the restaurant group says the “tacos and tortas will be the main attraction,” with both tortillas and tortas made fresh in-house.
TTT will also boast a full bar with “agave cocktails as well as classic margaritas,” the release said.
As for Buena Vida, the second-floor restaurant will showcase “traditional, indigenous fare that incorporates recipes that have been handed down through generations.” The 3,700-square-foot space will include seating for 101 people, including a bar and private dining room.
The menu will include a raw bar, plenty of soups and seafood, in addition to an “approachable list of wines from Mexico.”
Iricanin previously opened a similar pairing of TTT and Buena Vida in Silver Spring last year. He’s also planning to bring a new Ambar location to Northwest D.C. sometime this year, which will be his second in the city.
