Steven Arroyo Going Totally Loco For Tortillas at Esquela

By
Esquela might be in session on Stanley this August

Details are emerging on Esquela, planned for an August opening by conceptualist-owner-about-town Steven Arroyo, who is apparently a major taco fan, telling Feast, “Whether it’s braised beef, shrimp or wild boar, I always thought it would be better to have a tortilla around it.” He also informs Eater that "Esquela," misspelled like the discarded street-sign that inspired it, will be a taqueria that "re-introduces" the road-weary taco by focusing on handmade tortillas, along with sandwiches, daily-changing burritos, and aguas frescas. A lobster tank offers the highest hopes, with kill-to-order treats projected. Apparently, Arroyo might also expand Esquela as a small Southland chain if successful. That is, Umami Burger-successful, not just Cobras and Matadors successful.

Esquela, 306 N. Stanley Ave. Mid-City
