Former Takoma Park resident, Carolina McCandless, returns to the community from San Francisco with husband, David Perez, to open Cielo Rojo. This new Mexican taqueria will be located at 7056 Carroll Avenue, Takoma Park, a few doors down from her family’s clothing store, Amano, in the historic Takoma commercial district.
McCandless, born in Chile and Perez, from Mexico, want to celebrate their love of Latin food with this new restaurant which will include authentic Mexican street food and traditional favorites. Both have over 30 years combined restaurant experience working in restaurants around San Francisco, including an organic vegan Mexican restaurant where they met.
Construction will begin this summer with a targeted opening by the end of 2018.
