What used to be Highlands Asian Grill, across the street from Solitaire and next door to Blue Pan Pizza on 32nd and Perry, will become a second outpost of TAG Burger Bar next year.
Chef and restaurateur Troy Guard took over the space located at 3940 W 32nd Avenue and he is excited to bring his burgers to the Highland. "I looked around the neighborhood and saw a lot of Mexican restaurants so the burger bar seemed to make the most sense for that area," Guard said.
Construction has not started, but when it does, Guard plans to create a comfortable and family-friendly place that will include a big patio on the West side, something the building does not currently feature. This new TAG Burger Bar will not open until May 2016. In the meantime, Guard is focused on opening the DTC outpost of Los Chingones, coming up on October, and planning his yet-to-be-named RiNo restaurant located in the Industry building, among other projects.
