Tacubaya Is Moving
The new space is right near the original one, but twice as large.

Berkeley's Tacubaya restaurant will celebrate its fifteenth birthday this July by moving two doors down the street from its current Fourth Street location to a new one twice its size.
Measuring 2,285 square feet, the new space — which formerly housed Pompette — will feature Mexican tile, tanned-leather banquettes, hot pink and orange details, an eighteen-foot ceilings, a tequila- and mezcal-forward full bar, a designated outdoor cocktail seating area, and additional seating for thirty in the mezzanine, which will also be used for private functions.
Five-foot-wide, 160-pound hand-wrought iron chandeliers will be brought over from the original space.
The menu will include a few new botanas such as taquitos and sopes. Counter service will continue, but the restaurant's new incarnation will also offer catering and full dinners-to-go — including aciote-marinated rotisserie chickens.
