Mexican restaurant chain plans to open in Lincoln


A new burrito and taco restaurant may be coming to Lincoln’s Corn Exchange. Rob Lucy of Mexican Grill Limited asked Lincoln City Council to install new signage in the currently unoccupied unit next to the Everyman Cinema.

According to plans, the restaurant will be called Tortilla and will serve “real Californian burritos and tacos.” The app includes a number of neon light signs to hang both indoors and outdoors.

The designs also reveal an outdoor seating area with branded planters located outside. According to the Tortilla website, the company was started in London in 2007 by a Californian couple who “grew up hanging out at taquerias in San Francisco’s missionary district.”

In addition to the two dishes above, it serves a host of traditional Mexican dishes, including quesadilla and nachos. The chain now has over 45 stores across the country and the Middle East, with the latest opening in Bournemouth.

The closest restaurants to Lincoln are currently in Leeds and Nottingham. The new store will form part of the multi-million pound redevelopment of Cornhill Quarter which, when completed, aims to breathe ‘new life’ into Sincil Street and once again make it one of the busiest and most popular streets liveliest downtown.

The area has seen great improvements and has attracted major chains including: Phase Eight, Hobbs, Whistles, Cozy Club, Moss Bros, Flying Tiger Copenhagen, Lakeland, 200 Degrees, Neon Sheep, HMV, Doughnotts, Seasalt, Energy Fitness, Everyman Cinema, The Botaniste, Trent Galleries, Specsavers and the newly opened K.Fines jewelry store.
