The beloved neighborhood institution reopened in a new space on Beacon Hill, serving delicious Baja California cuisine and recipes passed down to owner Oscar Castro from his mother and grandmother.
Since 1994, Oscar Rodriguez has served dishes he learned from his mother and grandmother, cuisine from Baja California, Mexico. The original space was only about 1,000 square feet, and proudly doubled as Beacon Hill’s one and only LGBTQ+ friendly bar and host of the popular weekly drag show performed by Atasha Manila every Wednesday night. Longtime fans were heartbroken when doors closed in the summer of 2020 due to rising rents and the pandemic.
However three years later, Baja Bistro is back to welcome the community, a true testament to its permanence and resiliency in the face of a rapidly changing Beacon Hill landscape. La Union Studio is proud to have played a role in helping Oscar and his family remain in the neighborhood they've long served. Whether you kick your morning off with a plate of huevos rancheros or wind down your evening for fish tacos and enchiladas, Baja Bistro is sure to give you a taste of the unique flavors of the Baja California.
