Today's businesses are obsessed with getting more mobile, even if it means listening to that UPS whiteboard chick, despite the fact that she totally has a package. For a restaurant going in the opposite direction, check out the new, stationary District Taco.
The fresh homebase of Arlington's much-loved foodcart, Taco's a 2400sqft, 80-seat counter-orderer equipped with free wifi, a massive flat grill, and a huge "local" chalkboard covered with the origin of the week's rotating organic ingredients...or, Bart Simpson got detention for mooning the farmers market. Traditional grub includes tacos, brand new burritos (mojado), and quesadillas, all made with fresh flour tortillas stuffed with carnitas/poc-chuc/carne asada/pollo asado/ceviche (the cart only rocked two per day) and fresh toppings like grilled veggies/pico de gallo/jalapenos, as well as new rotating new options like the chicken mole poblano, and Shawarma-style, spit-grilled pork "Tacos al Pastor" -- deliciously habit-forming enough to ensure they're no help on your path to en-light-enment. They've also got breakfast-all-day options like Huevos Rancheros, and morning tacos like a "Basic" egg & cheeser, diet-y options like the egg whites "Healthy" and beans/grilled peppers/onion "Veggie", and caffeine-ation via coffee from DC's own M.E. Swings, also the java of choice at parties where everyone's grinding each other's beans.
They're also keenly planning to launch their own food truck sometime in the coming year, showing that even when they're settled, just like UPS's sultry spokeswoman, they're not afraid to push the envelope.
