The new casual dining restaurant Taco/Social opened its latest location at 1627 Colorado Boulevard in Los Angeles, California, on 10 October 2023.

The restaurant is located in a historic brick building with indoor dining, bar seating and an outdoor patio.

It is being promoted by Pasadena-based restauranteurs, including the founders of Blaze Pizza, Dog Haus, Wetzel’s Pretzels and Gus’s BBQ.

At Taco/Social, guests can order unconventional and freeform tacos along with a selection of tequila-based cocktails. The recipes have been created by chef Ilan Hall include Banh Mi, Tikka Masala, Greek Life and Nola Po Boy.

This new location is open seven days a week and claims to serve freshly prepared sauces, toppings and proteins.

The full tequila-forward bar offers speciality fresh and frozen margaritas, craft cocktails, wine and draft beer. The drinks were developed in partnership with mixologist Phil Wills.

Taco/Social and Blaze Pizza co-founder Elise Wetzel said: “We see an opportunity to approach tacos in a completely different way, so we want to make sure that everyone at our grand opening celebration gets to experience one of our signature freeform tacos on the house.

“We use a counter order format, but our tacos are incredibly well crafted, making our food both craveable and affordable. With signature cocktails, plenty of outdoor seating and a family-friendly kid’s menu, Taco/Social’s food and format are unique. We’re thrilled to see how much the community is already enjoying it.”

Taco/Social and Dog Haus co-founder André Vener said: “This group of seasoned restaurateurs has wanted to collaborate on a new concept for a long time and now we’ve come together to create Taco/Social. The vision for us was to create a neighbourhood place that we’d enjoy sharing with our friends.

“The result is Taco/Social – an affordable, polished fast-casual concept with a fun bar programme. It’s designed to be a community gathering spot where you can grab a quick lunch, watch a game or linger over a dinner with friends.”
