Masa opens today

By weeklyvolcano on December 4, 2006

Masa will forgo the friends and family night they planned and open to the public today in the former Ricardo’s space across the street from Asado on Sixth Avenue. The two-story restaurant, brought to you by the folks behind Asado, will offer its take on traditional Mexican fare with an enticingly expansive menu including fresh tortillas made on site (“masa” means dough), a taco cart, and a deli for items on the go.  Handmade Mexican terra cotta tiles by Tacoma artist Claudia Riedener will add a traditional touch to this modern space.  I can’t wait to see what they have done with that upstairs deck.  â€" Jake de Paul
