Takoda Restaurant & Beer Garden Partners Ryan Seelbach and Jeff Sunderland are pleased to announce the early March, 2018 anticipated opening of Cortez, the 80-seat 2,400 square-foot Baja-inspired restaurant and rooftop tequila bar located in the Shaw Neighborhood at 1905 9th Street, Northwest.

Cortez’s name is derived from the Sea of Cortez, which is located on the eastern coast of the Baja California Peninsula. Anticipate a creative take on lite Mexican fare, paired with the restaurant’s over 30 tequilas, over 10 kinds of rum, Latin-American beers, Mexican cocktails, and frozen cocktails.

Think small plates like elote grilled corn with cotija cheese, multiple varieties of homemade guacamole with freshly made corn tortilla chips, and baja quesadillas. The playful and airy space will offer brightly colored chairs, wood tables, exposed brick walls painted in white, mural designs by local artists, and amber-colored pendant lighting throughout.
