Freshly minted in North Park is Tamarindo, where a new eatery from local Moose Restaurant Group has emerged from a vibrantly-colored makeover of the neighborhood’s longstanding Claire de Lune Coffee Lounge. The University Avenue restaurant is now serving a well-priced accessible menu from head chef Elliott Townsend (Juniper & Ivy) that draws on his Mexican heritage and his experience cooking with local and seasonal ingredients and a cocktail and spirits showing from Mark Broadfoot (Galaxy Taco) that ranges from classically-rooted cocktails to an agave spirits lineup that spotlights sustainability; get an in-depth look at the food and beverage program here.

Bill Sauer, the restaurant’s general manager, tells Eater that for now the restaurant will open daily at 5 p.m. but the Tamarindo team is hoping to start offering lunch and brunch service soon.
