It was a match made in binge-drinking heaven, but now it’s coming to a close: Chef Monica Dimas announced she will shut down her Neon Taco walk-up window inside Capitol Hill’s Nacho Borracho bar. Her last day slinging tacos there will be March 31, but Dimas’s excellent cooking will live on at her full-service restaurant, Little Neon Taco, on First Hill. That venture won Eater Seattle’s 2018 Restaurant of the Year award.

Neon Taco posted news of its pending closure on its Facebook page, but the post hints at expansions in future, saying, “where should we open our next Neon Taco?”

Neon Taco inside of Nacho Borracho will be closing on March 31st! Come see us at @littleneontaco on First Hill for all...

At the end of February, Dimas closed her walk-up window Tortas Condesa, also on Capitol Hill. Dimas told Eater she voluntarily let the lease end in order to focus on other projects. Some of the tortas live on at Little Neon Taco.

Dimas operated small-but-mighty walk-up operations long before she opened Little Neon Taco, her first full-fledged restaurant. She’s contracting her reach a bit but still has plenty of irons in the fire, including the December addition of her Sunset Fried Chicken sandwiches to Queer/Bar on Capitol Hill. Dimas is also working on a Sea-Tac Airport location of Sunset Fried Chicken, which will join a slew of other exciting additions to the airport’s dining options.
