Another opening in the neighborhood as John Fulchino and Ann Cashion’s latest spot, Taqueria Nacional, opened its doors yesterday by greeting us with delicious tacos.

After a year of renovations the old Post Office building has become Taqueria Nacional. The 2,600 square-foot, fast-casual restaurant serves up a variety of tacos (think beef, fish chicken, chorizo and lamb) made with organic ingredients. Fulchino also has added a variety of quesadillas and salads to the 14th Street menu, as well as margaritas, beer and agua frescas.

Taqueria Nacional will be open for breakfast starting at 7 am and lunch at 11 am. It will be offering “El Desayuno” served Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to noon. Check their menu here.

Fulchino created a space inspired by traditional Mexican and Cuban colors and designs with nice tiling and beautiful decor.

“I want to make the environment people are eating in feel like an old home in Mexico,” said Fulchino.

The new location will seat approximately 45 inside and 15 to 20 seats on the outdoor patio.
