|Cinco's ready to party in Westchester|
Ricardo Diaz, the chef behind Bizarra Capital's amazing chorizo verde tostada and aguachile ceviche, is planning a new taco bar; he Tweets out that he's working on a new project, Colonia Taco Lounge. The chef, who helped launch Guisados (but is no longer involved with the taquerias), recently closed a ceviche bar in Monterey Park. Grub Street suggests that's where the new restaurant will be. At Bizarra Capital, the staffer we talked to said Diaz was getting a "new place ready," so this must be it.
And the Sacramento Bee hints that Jaime Martin del Campo and Ramiro Arvizu from La Casita Mexicana will open a second location of their Bell original, possibly in the same Baldwin Hills shopping center as Govind Armstrong's Post & Beam. Martin del Campo and Arvizu will be at the Cinco de Mayo celebration there this weekend, along with Aztec dancers, an all-female mariachi group, Folklorico dancers, the LA Galaxy Futboleros and more.
