Michael Schlow's New Happy's Replacement Is Called Barrio Cantina, Will Open Later This Week

Michael Schlow, heading for the barrio.

Michael Schlow's rep confirms to us that he's replacing Happy's near Fenway Park with Barrio Cantina (no, not "Feliz" or "Tico Two"). The Mexican restaurant will open "later this week," per a rep. As we reported prior, expect 70 different kinds of tequilas, quesadillas, tacos, and a (naturally) happy vibe.

Happy's, of course, was a kind of lounge-y diner that served breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but never fully took off. We're Schlow fans around here: Hopefully BC can compete with El Pelon and La Verdad. Stay tuned for all the spicy details, like an official opening date.
