Southern California-style taqueria and juice chain Taco Dumbo is more than doubling its current footprint in New York City — with five additional locations coming soon to Manhattan serving its so-called “healthy lifestyle” tacos.

The chain, owned by company Retail Worx, has signed new leases in Nolita, Midtown, and in the Financial District, and has plans to open the new spots within the next two months, a spokesperson says. The first will debut at 56 Spring St., where the company used to run Japanese restaurant Omakasa, but that restaurant has since closed to make way for the taqueria. The Omakasa at 31 West 52nd St. has also closed as the company turns its focus to Taco Dumbo.

Offering tacos and beachy cocktails, Taco Dumbo has four existing locations, including one in Penn Station, two Midtown, and one in Dumbo. See a list of new and existing locations below.

The new restaurant at 114 W. 47th St., between Sixth and Seventh avenues, will be its flagship. It’ll have 75 seats, two private dining rooms, a bar, and a lounge, plus hammocks and projector screens showing vintage surf videos to round out the California aesthetic.

Taco Dumbo originally opened in Brooklyn in 2016 and became known for that breezy look while promoting the “the healthy lifestyle” in Southern California. Its parent company Retail Worx was started that same year and is also an investor in popular bar Randolph Beer, convenience store brand Bridges General, and is working on a new workout concept called Bia.
