Bartaco, a taco and tequila bar, just opened its second DFW outpost at Preston Center, according to Eater-Dallas.  You’ll find it at 6140 Luther Lane at the intersection of Preston Road and Northwest Highway. Can a Connecticut-based chain do tacos for Texans?

Eater reports that the restaurant seats 120 inside and 30 on a patio.

Robert Philpot of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram interviewed Sabato Sagaria, president of Bartaco when the restaurant opened in Fort Worth.

“I think one of the things people think of when they think ‘Bartaco’ is, ‘Oh, it’s Mexican’,” Sagaria said. “[But] we use the tortilla as the canvas, and then from there, it’s coastal cuisine. Whether that’s South America, whether it’s Southern California, whether it’s Mexico, it’s using flavors that you’d find in street food there. Even Southeast Asia — we have a delicious pork-belly taco that’s glazed with pickled red onions. We do have some traditional, but it’s definitely not Tex-Mex.”
