Bartaco WestBend, the first Texas location for the upscale street eatery with a coastal vibe, is now open in Fort Worth.
Bartaco’s food and design is Inspired by the beach culture of Brazil, Uruguay and Southern California. The menu focuses on fresh ingredients and bold flavors with an array of tacos filled with fish, vegetables, and slow-cooked pork, chicken, and steak in addition to salads, rice bowls and seasonal specials to satisfy cravings. The interiors include reclaimed Douglas-fir walls, painted blue and white with reclaimed wood accents and blue and white custom tile handmade in Mexico. Several items are sourced from around the globe including outdoor pendant lights from the 1940s from Round Top, Texas that were salvaged from an old ammunition manufacturing facility in Iowa. Additional repurposed items include a vintage factory cart, once used in an autobody repair shop in Bangor, Maine now serving as a water station. Displayed artwork will showcase a collection of photographs taken by co- founder and Chief Creative Officer Sasa Mahr-Batuz.
On May 7, Irving-based Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group Inc. (NASDAQ:DFRG) announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire bartaco-parent company Barteca Restaurant Group for $325 million in cash.
