Grand re-opening of Jose Garces’ Distrito as Distrito Taqueria

Jose Garces has reimagined the first floor of his 7-year-old West Philly modern Mexican as a casual taqueria. Head upstairs if you want the fancier plates from the old menu, but settle in downstairs to dig into $3.50 tacos, $9.50 burritos and $9.50 quesadillas. There's new decor, too, including swing-set seating and glitter hi-tops. Look for drink specials throughout the opening day.

Where: Distrito at 3945 Chestnut St.

When: September 10, 2015 from 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

How much: $3 to $5 for drinks on special
