Taqueria del Barrio, replacing Domku on Upshur, opening later this month and now hiring

Want to work at a new taco spot coming to Upshur Street? I just got a press release from the folks behind Taqueria del Barrio, who also run the DC Empanadas food truck. They're aiming to open later this month and are hiring now.

The spot is taking the place of Domku and looks pretty modern from their renderings. They describe it as a neighborhood taqueria with "authentic Mexican food made with locally sourced ingredients" plus cocktails, wine and craft beer.
