Two Men Chew fave and Travel + Leisure-voted “best tacos in LA”, Guisados, has confirmed that they’re on schedule to open their Downtown L.A. location this month. This would be their third spot, with the original Guisados located in Boyle Heights (we visited the Echo Park Guisados for our reviews last year).
We’ve been hankering for this DTLA location for some time now, and we were actually beginning to feel that this was just a massive tease: Originally slated to open in February, the Guisados team is now finishing up construction at the Spring Street Arcade building (between 5th and 6th). The menu will offer all of the same items (including the Armando Palmero agua fresca, a hole-en-uno), plus a breakfast menu!
The most exciting feature? The DTLA location plans to offer a late-night menu Thursday through Saturday, when Guisados plans to stay open until 2AM (the latest that the Echo Park Guisados stays open is 10PM). This is good news for me, since this will lure the weekend warriors a little bit further away from my apartment on Main where the “Danny’s Verdaderos” taco truck usually makes a killing. Sorry, Danny, it looks like there’s a new chorizo in town now.
The new Guisados location will be at 541 South Spring St, Los Angeles, 90013
