Ogle the Splashy Pink Walls at Tacubaya’s Roomy New Berkeley Space


Tacubaya is all settled into is new Fourth Street location, just a couple of doors down from its original location, serving counter-service Mexican favorites once more.

The 15-year-old restaurant snatched up the space after it was recently vacated by Pompette (and Cafe Rouge before that), doubling its size. It brought along the old space’s color scheme, with freshly painted pink walls, enormous iron chandeliers, leather banquettes, Mexican tile, and papel picadas strung throughout.

The menu and staff are mostly the same, but with the welcome addition of a full bar stocked with tequila and mezcal, an outdoor seating area that allows cocktails, and a mezzanine seating area. It’ll also offer full dinners to take away, with rotisserie chickens accompanied by beans, rice, tortillas, salsa, and guacamole and chips.

The new location is 1782 Fourth Street, and is open from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m.
