Jose Garces' 19th restaurant - opening March 16 - will be Buena Onda, a taqueria inspired by the laid-back taquerias and seafood shacks of the Baja peninsula. It's taking space in The Granary, near Pizzeria Vetri and Gyu-Kaku, at 1901 Callowhill St.

Looks as if Garces and crew are trying to build the bar-restaurant into more than simply a restaurant brand.

The house specialty is fish tacos, featuring sustainably sourced Atlantic mahi-mahi and jumbo Pacific shrimp; also available will be carnitas tacos, chicken tacos, Mission-style quesadillas, washed down by fresh fruit margaritas (try the frozen prickly pear), draft beer (Yards is making a pale ale called K38, after the surfing beach), and canned Mexican beers. It also will serve paletas (popsicles) in pineapple and strawberry.

A few do-good aspects: recyclable materials will be used in packaging, and 50 cents from every guacamole and bottled-water purchase will go to the Garces Foundation.

In a partnership with Jetty, a New Jersey-based lifestyle apparel company, Buena Onda will have a small retail shop of shore-inspired items. Jetty also has designed the staff uniforms.

Hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
