Chef Rick Bayless, famous for specializing in Mexican cuisine (primarily) in Chicago has his sights set on New York City.
Bayless will be opening the second location of his fast casual tortas chain Tortazo in Flatiron.
The upcoming location will be opening at 1123 Broadway, between West 25th and 26th streets.
Tortazo currently has one location in Chicago at the Willis Tower.
Eater mentions that “the chain, backed by fast food favorite Jolibee” which I think is pretty cool. (FYI- We’re big fans of Jollibee!)
We’ve tried Bayless’s Tortas Frontera at Chicago’s O’Hare airport a couple of times and really enjoyed it. I’m definitely excited to give this new fast casual restaurant a try when it opens in NYC.
