Mexican street food with an urban flair coming soon to Blue Ash's Summit Park

BLUE ASH, Ohio — Tahona Kitchen and Bar will soon make it “a walk in the park” to get street-style tacos, with the restaurant scheduled to open on March 28 at Summit Park in Blue Ash.

Tahona will offer Mexican street food-inspired fare in a space that has “an urban feel, kind of industrial-meets-California fresh,” said Scott Schmidt, a 30-year veteran of the hospitality industry and founder of Looking Glass Hospitality Group (LGHG), which owns the restaurant.

A quirky coincidence brought Tahona to Summit Park, he said.

“This site was a Post-it note on my realtor’s wall,” Schmidt said. “She was leasing spaces out for Summit Park.”

Kathleen Norris, owner of Urban Fast Forward, remembers the moment well.

“It was an oversized 5-inch-by-7-inch bright orange Post-it note with the word ‘tacos’ on it,” she said.

When she told Schmidt she was looking for a Mexican restaurant concept, he replied, “I’ve got a Mexican concept.”
