Don Pistos, the populist Mexican place in North Beach, is cashing in on its popularity with an expansion to the Marina. Come Tuesday, July 26, a smaller outpost called Don Pistos Tequila Bar will open to the workout wear-donning denizens of the neighborhood looking to down some tacos and taste tequila. The playful food menu is significantly pared down from the original, with essentially just some salads, tacos, tostadas, a burger, and larger plates. You can see it in full below.
The space is also smaller, with a bar and a few tables along the wall. The design is not done, but you can get a sneak peek below.
It will be interesting to see how the restaurant is received by the neighborhood; while Don Pistos’ concept is primed for success in that area, Tacolicious currently corners the basic taco market on campus. Don Pistos premieres on Tuesday, July 26.
