It’s been a couple of years since we first heard about Tabu coming soon to 128 E. Congress St., and over the weekend, folks got a first look at the new concept.
Located right next to the former Chicago Music Store building at the corner of Congress Street and Sixth Avenue, the restaurant has opened its dining room — offering it as dine-in and to-go.
Right now, the hours of operation are 9 a.m. – 2 a.m. on Wednesday – Sunday, making it a nice spot for brunch, which features dishes like the Pibil Benedict and a Beef Smash Burger, and a late-night spot for those seeking a meal and cocktails.
The dinner menu features the likes of herb-seared Ahi tuna, meatball sliders, Grilled Nopales, and Ribeye Aguachile — grilled steak with avocado, cucumber, jalapeño, and radish.
The owners, who have spent several months renovating the location inside the building that’s more than 100 years old, credit their fusion of inspiration to South American cuisine, native ingredients, and even a bit of European and Asian influences. With plenty of tables for groups and comfy seating at the bar, Tabu has transformed into yet another unique downtown destination.
Tabu is located at 128 E. Congress St. For more information, visit tabubartucson.com.
