Condado Will Take Over Clintonville’s La Patrona Space for its Fourth Columbus Location
Condado’s Clintonville location has been locked down. La Patrona will be closing its doors this summer to make way for Condado’s fourth Columbus store, opening this fall. This new location is part of a string of recent Condado openings in Columbus and Pittsburgh. The locally founded restaurant continues its speedy expansion despite the growing number of taco-centric restaurants opening in the area.
“I never worry about that,” said Joe Kahn, owner of Condado. “You know, we stand behind our brand. We’re not worried about other taco places. All the other taco places do a great job, we just worry about ourselves and want people to come see us.”
Their Clintonville restaurant will cover 3,000 square feet, a similar size to their Short North location. When you step in, you’ll know you’re in a Condado based on that trademark aesthetic, and the menu of chips, dips, margaritas, and build-your-own tacos. But, Kahn promises that, like all the others, Condado Clintonville will sport its own unique version of the brand’s style.
Kahn recently debuted Condado in Pittsburgh and is contemplating a second location there. He’s also looking at Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Detroit. As for Columbus, he’s happy with the four locations at the moment (Short North, Downtown, Easton and Clintonville), but he’s considering Grandview and Worthington.
For now, “We’re just excited to serve the Clintonville market,” Kahn said.
Condado Clintonville has an opening set for mid-September. La Patrona will stay open until summer. For more information, visit condadotacos.com.
