Vida Taco Bar of Annapolis is coming to Baltimore this year.
Beatty Development Group announced that the popular restaurant is scheduled to open in December at 1405 Point, a 17-story, 289-unit luxury apartment building under construction on Harbor Point’s Central Plaza, just south of the Exelon Building.
Known for its “farm-to-taco” menu, featuring local, sustainable products whenever possible, Vida Taco Bar is the first announced retail tenant for 1405 Point, which is also scheduled to open by the end of the year.
Vida Taco Bar will lease 3,659 square feet of space. As in Annapolis, it will feature tacos and shared plates that respect the traditions of Mexican cuisine but also leave room for experimentation, as well as handcrafted margaritas created using mixes made from scratch daily.
Earlier this year, Beatty and principals of the Foodshed restaurant group announced plans to choose retailers and restaurateurs throughout the 27-acre Harbor Point development that emphasize the use of local, sustainable products. Vida Taco is consistent with that approach, said Beatty president Michael Beatty.
“With Harbor Point, our goal is to establish a new urban neighborhood that is wholly dedicated to supporting local sourcing and sustainability, especially with our food offerings,” Beatty said in a statement. “Bringing Vida Taco to Harbor Point is a perfect example of those efforts in action — a home grown restaurant with a commitment to using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. It’s a great pairing.”
