The owners of Asado have bought Ricardo's, across the street from their Argentine-inspired restaurant on Tacoma's Sixth Avenue.
Partner Troy Christian said the plans are for a "high-end" Mexican restaurant. I reached him in Chicago, where he's checking out celebrity chef Rick Bayless' Mexican restaurant. Asado chef Sean Quinn has recently checked out places in Phoenix. They're also gathering Mexican inspiration in California and New York.
The as-yet-named restaurant will likely open in November, Christian said.
