La Carnita‘s second location finally opened in Riverside Monday night, months after plans to settle in the Beach fell through. The new taqueria is located in the former home of Rasputin Vodka Bar. Owner Andrew Richmond has told us that the core menu will be the same as it is at the original La Carnita on College Street, but the daily specials will be different at each spot. Richmond also says that the “wildly successful Sunday rib special” from his College location will be available every single day at the Riverside restaurant. And if you’re looking to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with something a little different, there’s this (somewhat) Irish-inspired Sweet Jesus creation.
