Barbacoa, brought to you by the team behind Table 24, opened its doors next to its flagship restaurant and claimed even more space at Orinda's Theatre Square this week and bringing a much-hoped-for Mexican restaurant into play.
Early reviews by patrons who happened by the "soft" Grand Opening Tuesday, saw the doors open and the grill turning out wood-fired Mexican food were favorable.
And there's a full bar. And spatial separation for imbibing adults who want to sit at the bar for a post-work cocktail free of war cries from rampaging children -- and a space for families hoping to keep those very children happy while they feed the brood.
Patchers have expressed a hankering for good Mexican food for months here. If you got in the door, let us know what you think of Barbacoa. And good luck to them.
