Tim Spinner and Brian Sirhal are opening a third restaurant called Taqueria Feliz, this time in Manayunk. Taqueria Feliz is landing at 4410 Main Street, which had previously been earmarked for Cervisia, the craft beer-centric restaurant from the Belvedere Restaurant Group (Tapestry). Sirhal told The Insider that they're going for a South Philly-style taqueria vibe with 65 seats. The team has targeted Spring of 2013 for opening.
The Tim Spinner and Brian Sirhal empire is one of the feel-good food stories of the last few years. Spinner is a one-time Jose Garces lieutenant who made a name for himself at Distrito, and Brian Sirhal managed the front of the house. They found success in the 'burbs with their debut restaurant Cantina Feliz, and then scored a huge critical and commercial homerun with La Calaca Feliz in Fairmount.
