Richmond’s El Garage has temporarily shuttered, according to a recent report by East Bay Nosh.
The eatery at 1428 Macdonald Avenue — near establishments such as Burger King, Foods Co., and Salsa Taqueria — recently began collaborating with a fellow Richmond-based business, Armistice Brewing Company, operating the kitchen for its new outpost in Napa, which opened on November 3.
According to the journal, “El Garage Richmond is now temporarily closed while the team focuses on things up north — at first, it was just for a weekend, then the whole month.”
What Now San Francisco reached out to El Garage’s owner, Viviana Montano, to inquire about the suspension of service, but she could not provide additional information before publication.
For readers unfamiliar with El Garage, the eatery is known for its birria — a savory beef or goat stew native to Jalisco, where the meat is slow-cooked until tender — served on corn tortillas in taco form and loaded with cheese.
Stay tuned for updates.
