Recommended Posts

Walked by today and appears to be closed.

New sign hanging showing new restaurant coming called Aquaviva.

New sign hanging showing Flat Iron coming soon.  Apparently a revamp by the current owners.

Time for another change in this space. Flat Iron is closed. A banner on the front of the building announces "Don Taco Tequila Bar - Coming Soon".

Again from Red Brick town

"Don Taco Restaurant and Tequila Bar Coming to Old Town"

RE: "changeover from Flat Iron Steak & Saloon to Don Taco Restaurant & Tequila Bar.

One of the owners, Scott Parker, reached out via email.

"While we had a good 2.5 years at Flat Iron, we never felt that the concept was successful enough. We know we can do better and provide something that the people of Old Town can enjoy more and on a more regular basis.

We hope to open by February 15th as construction is moving along quickly. The new concept will have a bar on the first floor, as well as one on the second floor with tables for seated dining on both.

Diners can expect a concept that is based around tacos, beer, and tequila. There will be a few other Mexican-American items but tacos will be the bulk and the highlight of the menu."

Scott Parker is the owner/co-owner of Don Tito and A-Town.  I'm not sure "diners" will be the right term here.

The brown paper is off the windows and opening appears to be imminent (March 7, per their FB page). The layout is a complete change from the previous incarnation(s), with booths lining the right side and a bar on the left.

It'll be interesting to see how (if?) this place will impact Austin Grill, just across the street, also branded as a Tequila Bar.
