The long-awaited Salsa Limon “Museo” opened Wednesday in the historic Topsy’s Cafe building, right across the street from the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. This is the first standalone restaurant in sibling owners Milo and Rosalia Ramirez’s Salsa Limon empire, which includes three food trucks and the original mall location at La Gran Plaza in South Fort Worth.

Originally built in 1947, the aluminum “Streamline Moderne” building has had several occupants over the past five decades, including Rush Street, J&J’s and Quizno’s.

Seating options are few. You either stand and wait for one of two tables to open or sit on pub stools in front of the tiny kitchen area or along the wall of windows facing Morton Street. The patio, accented with log furniture, isn’t quite ready yet but will offer seating for about 30 more people is now open.

Salsa Limon’s small, well-known menu has been expanded to include new tacos, such as red snapper, and more breakfast options. Old favorites are here, too, including the El Capitan taco. There are also fresh aquas fresca.

Breakfast service starts at 6:30am and the restaurant stays open until 11:30pm daily.
