Barrio, the build-your-own-taco restaurant that originated in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland, is coming to downtown Kent.
According to a press release, it will open in the summer at 295 S. Water St., in the space formerly occupied by Newdle Bar.
“We are so excited to see Barrio grow into more neighborhoods in just seven years … We are very grateful to introduce Barrio to new neighborhoods where people of all ages can enjoy!” said owner Sean Fairbairn in the press release.
The menu allows diners to customize tacos by choosing the tortilla, protein, salsa and other toppings, or you can pick from the chef’s selections. Margaritas, tequila and whiskey are featured drinks.
It will be the sixth Ohio location for Barrio; others are in Lakewood, Cleveland Heights, Willoughby and the Gateway district in downtown Cleveland, in addition to the original in Tremont. It also operates food trucks, two stands at Progressive Field and a restaurant in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
