Downtown’s District Taqueria to open early fall

The sign is up and demolition has begun inside the old Kelly’s Irish Pub to make way for District Taqueria, a new “urban taco bar” at 917 E. Douglas.

Owners Michael Farha and Marc Humsi originally hoped to have it open this month, but standard delays have pushed the date back to late September or early October, Farha said.

When it opens, the restaurant will have a full bar and will serve what Farha calls “inspired street tacos.” It’ll be open for lunch and dinner Mondays through Saturdays.

This restaurant, by the way, is right next door to the Wichita Eagle. We haven’t been this excited or hungry since the pre-Wasabi days.
