Casual Mexican bar to open in Dos Coyotes space on R Street
The owners of Iron Horse Tavern will take over the next-door space that Dos Coyotes Border Cafe will vacate on R Street at the end of June.
Mason, Curtis and Alan Wong, who also own downtown hot spots Firestone Public House, Cafeteria 15L, Mix, Ma Jong’s Asian Diner and Gogi’s Korean BBQ, are not planning to expand Iron Horse Tavern, but rather launch a casual new Mexican bar concept at the location currently occupied by Dos Coyotes. The restaurant group's executive chef Christian Palmos is expected to head up the menu, and the team's longtime design partner, the Napa-based firm Shopworks, will work on this new venture.
Iron Horse Tavern, at 15th and R Streets, which is named after the trains that used to thunder down the R Street corridor, opened in the summer of 2015 with a menu of creative New American dishes, including popular standouts like brandy-fried chicken nuggets. Dos Coyotes opened its first location in Davis in 1991 and currently has nine other spots throughout Sacramento and the Bay Area.
