Cohn Restaurant Group To Unveil BO-Beau Kitchen + Caché & 100% For-Charity Libertad Tacos On May 18 | Get Your First Look & Check Out The Menus

May 14, 2017

Earlier this year we broke the news that San Diego's Cohn Restaurant Group was revamping its former 100 Wines space in Hillcrest into the 4th incarnation of its French-bisto BO-beau concept and taking over the neighboring space for the city's first 100% for-charity eatery - Libertad Tacos a la Brasa - and a Parisian speakeasy cocktail lounge - Caché. We are excited to report that all three concepts will open on May 18!

BO-beau Kitchen + Caché is a dual concept in and of itself - one part French-inspired bistro, BO-beau Kitchen - with a hidden speakeasy-like craft cocktail bar - Caché - accessible through a secret freezer door. Nextdoor, Libertad Tacos a la Brasa is a 100% for-charity casual modern taco eatery with a menu centered around a custom wood-fired grill. All three concepts were designed and will be managed by longtime CRG member Phillip Bertran.

BO-beau's Hillcrest menu will be similar to the three other locations, inspired by Bohemian France with a menu helmed by Executive Chef Alex Weltz. The new BO-beau will have a Parisian-inspired design and offer eclectic seating options, including an indoor bar and lounge and partially covered outdoor back patio. The Caché Parisian speakeasy concept will be accessible through a refrigerator door at the rear of Libertad and will have a 50-seat sunfilled bar with live olive trees and large art murals. The cocktail menu will offer drinks created by Cervantes Magaña, as well as French wines and beers.

Libertad is a modern taqueria with both indoor and outdoor seating that will serve an eclectic menu of tacos on housemade tortillas using proteins cooked over an open flame on a custom wood-fire grill. The restaurant has taken the idea first instituted by Portland's The Oregon Public House, and will donate one hundred percent of the profits to a monthly-changing, area-based charitable organization. Charities will be required to submit an application for consideration with a short video, and, if chosen, will receive net profits from the month, no less than $3,000 guaranteed.

BO-beau Kitchen + Caché & Libertad Tacos A La Brasa are located at 1023-1027 University Avenue in San Diego's Hillcrest neighborhood. For more information on the Cohn Restaurant Group and its many restaurant concepts, visit
