Taqueria Feliz from Tim Spinner and Brian Sirhal (Cantina Feliz, La Calaca Feliz) opens this afternoon at 4 p.m. at 4410 Main Street. Lucio Palazzo mans the kitchen at this 85-seat bar and restaurant and will be serving up a menu of classic Mexican taqueria dishes with a “Feliz” spin.

Like the other two Felizs, Taqueria Feliz has a bright color palette throughout and murals by artist Alison Dilworth. The exterior is a vibrant surfer blue and lime that stands out.

Taqueria Feliz’s menu is broken down by appetizers, tacos, soups and salads, tortas, big plates and most interestingly, Comida Loca (funky stuff). In that section you’ll find lamb heart skewers; a hot dog piled high with refried beans, salsa verde, chorizo, pico de gallo and smoked bacon; and beef tongue tacos with salsa de arbol, onion and cilantro.

The drink menu features a variety of craft beers on draft as well as in bottles and cans. Margaritas made with fresh fruit purees take advantage of the tequila selection of the bar. Happy Hour is offered Monday through Friday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.with a late night happy hour on Friday and Saturday from 10:30 p.m. to 12 midnight.
