There’s plywood and construction netting covering El Amigos Cantina, the bar on the corner of Mission and Virginia that’s connected at the hip with Emmy’s Spaghetti Shack.
El Amigos was an odd but not unpleasant place to grab a drink while waiting for a table to open up at Emmy’s, so what will happen to the space now? Emmy’s isn’t expanding; rather, the folls there told Bernalwood the family that runs El Amigos is transforming the joint into a “more upscale” tequila bar. I was made to understand that “more upscale”will likely be relative; rather than being upscale upscale, the tequila bar will simply be more upscale than the old El Amigos — which isn’t really so hard to do, so we’ll have to just wait and see.
