Two years after it closed in the Central West End, Gringo is plotting its triumphant return, with owner Chris Sommers saying he'll open a new location of the beach-vibe taco shack Downtown later this year.
The new location will be at 635 Washington Avenue, in the Laurel building. That's part of the MX Center, where Sommers' Pi Pizzeria is perpetually busy, and on the ground floor of the Embassy Suites Hotel, which caters to conventioneers (the convention center is just across the street).Chef Cary McDowell, who was originally involved in the concept, will be a co-owner.
