First Look: Condado Tacos at Bridge Park West
Condado Tacos’ sixth Columbus location and 11th location overall will open at Bridge Park West in Dublin this Thursday.
The new restaurant sits at 102 N. High St., near The Avenue Steak Tavern and upcoming locations of No Soliciting and The Pearl. It offers 3,100 square feet, with 600 square feet dedicated to the patio.
The interior is both consistent with that of Condado’s other locations, yet unique in its style and theme. Condado Dublin plays off of the town’s agricultural roots with a castle theme featuring recurring mural characters Taco Man and Moon Man. A mix of Columbus and Ohio artists came together to take guests through the farmlands of Dublin and a “Boozy Forest” with Taco Man, who’s been tasked with saving the Margarita Princess from a castle-dwelling dragon. Instead of challenging him to a heroic battle, Taco Man offers the dragon a taco, and all is resolved. Some Condado staff members have made it into the mural, as well as Founder Joe Kahn himself, in the form of “graffiti.”
Condado Creative Director Lindsay Pilko and full-time artist for the company Anna VanWalsen conceptualized the artwork for the Dublin location. It was executed by a group of artists from Columbus, Canton and Cincinnati.
The menu will be familiar to those who’ve visited any of Condado’s other 10 locations. Guests can opt for a staff-recommended taco or build their own by choosing a shell, protein, veggies, cheese, and sauce. There’s also a full bar, with the Condado specialty being their house margaritas.
Condado Dublin will host a grand opening event this Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Guests can get a free taco and half off house margaritas all day, and the first 100 people in the door will win a $25 gift card.
