Los Cuates coming to former Tiffany Tavern site.

Mexican restaurant Los Cuates is expanding into Old Town Alexandria.

The eatery currently has one location in Georgetown in the 1500 block of Wisconsin Ave.

A coming soon banner for Los Cuates was recently draped over the entrance to the former Tiffany Tavern space at 1116 King St. 

Tiffany Tavern closed in March 2013 after 33 years in operation at the location.

In June, Alexandria approved plans for a new French Bistro at the site from Cyrille Brenac, owner of Georgetown’s Bistrot Lepic and Wine Bar.

Vaso's Kitchen recently opened a second location next door at 1118 King St.

Thanks to these new restaurants for reinvigorating this stretch of King Street. Welcome Los Cuates! Now if we only had an Indian restaurant in Old Town we'd be all set...

D,L,C - Have you tried Flat Iron Steak & Saloon yet? They've got some great steak. Still mourning the loss of Tiffany Tavern which was a favorite of mine on weekends but I'm excited to try the new place.

Christina, Actually we have been to the Flat Iron Steak Saloon. I had the filet and my husband had the New York. They cooked our med-rare steaks to almost well done. We had no time to send them back. My sides were cold. We will try it again.

I know this is months after your post, but have you tried Brabo? We've eaten steak there a couple times now.
