The San Loco is opening SOON on Avenue C

The new San Loco at 111 Avenue C between Seventh Street and Eighth Street is close to being ready to dish out its quick-serve Tex-Mex specialities.

"We don’t have a solid opening date, but are targeting early December to open," said Kimo Hing, who runs San Loco with his wife Jill.

They officially took possession of this space in late May. CB3 also approved a liquor license for the address, the former tapas joint Marcha Cocina, in May.

As previously noted, San Loco debuted at 129 Second Ave. in the East Village in 1986 ... before later moving across the street to 124 Second Ave. between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place. That outpost closed in June 2017 due to an unsustainable rent increase. The Avenue A San Loco closed in 2014 after 15 years in business.

San Loco also has a location on Stanton Street.
