Great news! El Rico Tinto just shared information on Instagram that they're opening at a new and larger location. The grand opening is February 14th at 73-18 Northern Blvd.

Here's a pic of the space they shared:

  Very nice move here! Food is as good as ever. Huge fan of the tortilla soup and it was just as fabulous a few blocks over.
The restaurant is nicely appointed and cozy even. Hope that everyone makes there way over to the new location soon.

Yes at least I think so but on the door is ERL so you should look for those initials. Highly recommend!

Well, I went there Sunday at 10. The place was dead empty, but the divorciados were delicious as ever, and while we were eating there, three more families showed up. Go, go, go!

Does it still have the bakery component?
It appears to be just a restaurant.

I went once, maybe 2 weeks ago?, so right after they opened, and you are right, it is only a restaurant. There were a few sad baked goods by the cashier, but nothing like the previous locations. No cakes, etc.

Stopped by for a Friday night fish dinner. Had the Salmon tacos and the Shrimp tacos. Both were fresh and tasty. I did not like something in the Salmon tacos, but the Salmon itself was delicious. The shrimp tacos were delicious. We started with the Guac and Chips which were actually tostones instead of chips, with enough greens on the plate that the side salad we ordered went forgotten. No liquor license yet, so BYO for now. As someone else mentioned, the bakery is no more, but they still serve breakfast and lunch and have delivery. No other customers, so please stop by the new location if you want a tasty bite to eat.

that's good to hear. i always liked the shrimp tacos, and the cochinita pibil, which isn't easy to find around the neighborhood for some reason. have to get up that way -- northern is really no further than roosevelt (we're on 35th), but it seems like more of a hike for some weird reason.
