Mexican restaurant Red Pepper Taqueria is set to open its third metro Atlanta location this March, taking the place of another now-shuttered Mexican spot.
Jefe’s Tacos & Tequila closed its doors yesterday at 705 Town Blvd. in the Town Brookhaven development in Brookhaven.
Jefe’s, from the team behind popular Brookhaven restaurant Kaleidescope, opened in September 2016 and offered a menu of Mexican classics including chile con queso, enchiladas and tacos, as well as 60 different tequilas.
Red Pepper Taqueria owner Mimmo Alboumeh said he will take over the space in mid-March. Alboumeh opened the first Red Pepper location in 2011 in Buckhead at 3135 Piedmont Road NE, with a second following in 2012 at 2149 Briarcliff Road.
The menu features a variety of tacos, soups, salads, chef’s specials including chile relleno, fajitas and quesadillas as well as a weekend brunch menu offering $15 bottomless mimosas.
