RICHMOND, Va. -- A taqueria named for an iconic Mexican artist is pressing into a new Union Hill storefront. Kahlos Taqueria & Bar is preparing to open at 718 N. 23rd St., on the ground floor of the 23rd Street Triangle building, a mixed-use project with about 30 apartments from local developer Matt Jarreau.

The Mexican restaurant will be a family affair led by Iliana White, whose family previously owned restaurants in Charlottesville. Her mother Morena Arevalo will be Kahlos’ chef, her sister will tend bar, and her husband Brandon White’s contracting firm Doyen Stalwart is building out the restaurant.
