AVO TACO Announces Opening of Restaurant at Popular New Orleans Brewery

NEW ORLEANS (press release) – Holy guacamole – AVO TACO announced today the opening of its newest location in New Orleans, LA, marking the brand’s return to the same location after hosting a well-attended pop-up this same time last year.

The opening of the new location within the Port Orleans Brewery will be managed by New York-based Rooted Hospitality Group, the management team behind the brand’s award-winning New York location in New Hyde Park, as well as other the popular dining spots RUMBA Inspired Island Cuisine & Rum Bar, Cowfish, and RHUM Island Inspired Cuisine & Rum Bar.

Part of the restaurant industry since 2000 and having lived in New Orleans for many years, partner David Hersh lends a unique perspective to the project, explaining, “the roots of my lifelong love affair with food and cooking are here, so opening this location in New Orleans makes me especially happy and grateful,” Hersh said. “At AVO TACO, we are committed to guaranteeing our guests the tastiest food made with unique recipes and using only the highest quality ingredients.”

Guests visiting the new location will enjoy a bit of a departure from the brand’s specialties, with the menu including an abundance of fresh food that includes specialty burgers, more than 12 kinds of tacos featuring steak, chicken, pork, seafood, chicken, and more, guacamole topped with eight choices, along with quesadillas and kid-friendly choices.

For those looking to host a special event, let’s taco ‘bout a party because AVO TACO’s catering kicks hass – the eatery will offer all of its items (and more!) for off-site events, and can arrange everything from platters and trays, corporate luncheons, to unique parties and family gatherings or special occasions. And for those customers on the go, AVO TACO offers online ordering, with all menu items prepared in-house daily and ready from open until close.

The new location has already hired close to 10 full- and part-time associates for their culinary team, and to date, all of those team members have been newly hired from the local communities surrounding the New Orleans location.

Guests of this location will also come to know its new General Manager, Dylan Stafford, who joins the team with nearly 10 years of restaurant management experience. His new team of associates is ready to meet all of the needs of local residents.

“I’m excited about the opportunity I’ve been given to open the first AVO TACO location in New Orleans,” Stafford said. “We’ve been working very hard to get this store ready and we’re eager to serve this community. We are committed to guaranteeing exceptional food experiences to all of our guests.”
