No more dumplings; no more dookie chains.

With C&C Dumpling and the La Socia Pawn Shop gone from 69 Clinton Street, the popular Taqueria Diana restaurant is ready to take over. Both inside and out.

Yep. Taqueria Diana is definitely opening a second outpost at 69 Clinton Street, as we first reported over the summer. At the time, you’ll recall, ownership sidestepped the question by noting that “nothing is set in stone yet.”

It is, though.

Confirmation of its launch is tucked into an application to Community Board 3 for a seasonal Street Seat (March through December) outside the premises. According to the materials, you can expect to dine at Taqueria Diana sometime in “Spring 2017.” Which is also around the time that the al fresco installation will be implemented. (Though, only when the “encroachment” of sidewalk barriers from the 50 Clinton project site are removed.)

The placement, if approved by the advisory committee tonight, will be the third of its kind in the neighborhood, joining the Essex Market and Les Enfants de Boheme on Jefferson Street.

Taqueria Diana is a “California-inspired Mexican restaurant” founded three years ago by former Meatball Shop manager Matthew La Rue. The first location opened at 121 Second Avenue (near St. Mark’s) in July 2013.
