Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria Breaks Ground for New Restaurant in Towson

Towson, Md. (June 7, 2019)Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria, known for its authentic cuisine and craft cocktails, broke ground yesterday at its new location at The Shops at Kenilworth in Towson, Md. This marks a milestone of growth for the Felipe’s family of restaurants by entering the Mid-Atlantic region.

“Felipe’s puts a creative spin on a fresh concept for our latest phase of The Shops at Kenilworth,” said Brian Gibbons, Chairman and CEO of Greenberg Gibbons. “We’re thrilled to offer a new authentic and convenient dining option to the community.”

The 3,600 square-foot restaurant will be in a freestanding building, adjacent to Italian Gardens. It is expected to open early 2020. Felipe’s will offer its authentic, made-from-scratch Mexican food and drinks. The fast-casual restaurant also boasts a craft margarita bar for regulars to meet up for lunch, happy hour or to enjoy dinner and a fresh-squeezed, key lime margarita.

“As a family-owned restaurant company, we are always excited to join a new neighborhood,” said Director of Finance and Development Pike Howard. “And growing up just minutes away from The Shops at Kenilworth, I’m excited to finally have the opportunity to invite guests to enjoy our delicious food and welcoming hospitality in my hometown area.”

Felipe’s traditional recipes such as chicken tinga, carnitas, and al pastor will be featured on tacos, burritos, salads and more. The famous hand-squeezed, key-lime margaritas are inspired by various regions of Mexico. The fresh-crafted food can be enjoyed in the restaurant’s colorful décor that is reminiscent of a traditional Mexican taqueria. In addition, many of the restaurant’s fixtures, including the glassware, are handmade and imported from Tlaquepaque, Mexico.

It offers a diverse mix of retailers and restaurants, including Trader Joe’s, South Moon Under, Quiet Storm Surf Shop, Radcliffe Jewelers, About Faces Day Spa & Salon, Stebbins Anderson, Ruth Shaw, Atwaters and Italian Gardens.
