After being featured in Washingtonian Magazine, the owners of Cielo Rojo have announced a fall opening target for San Pancho, a new Takoma Park restaurant concept that will serve tortas and Mission-style burritos.
The announcement, made this afternoon on San Pancho’s Instagram account, also revealed the restaurant’s branding produced by Dallas-based illustrator Paloma Nicole Diaz, a first-generation Mexican-American artist that blends Mexican folk art with traditional wood engraving.
“We are looking forward to bringing SF Mission-style burritos to the DC area,” the announcement reads. “Our target opening is fall 2022. We will keep everyone updated here! We’re so excited with our branding, done by Mexican-American illustrator @paloma.nicole.illustration. It is inspired by the richness & culture of the Mission district in SF (La Mission), where our concept was born.”
The restaurant will be located in the current home of Cielo Rojo at 7211 Carroll Ave. in Takoma Park, while Cielo Rojo will relocate to the former home of Healey Surgeons at 7211 Carroll Ave., as initially reported by Washington City Paper’s Nevin Martell.
