Quinoa to Reopen at New Doylestown Location in March

Great news for fans of Quinoa Peruvian and Mexican Restaurant BYO! This popular eatery will be reopening at a new location at 54 East State Street in Doylestown in March.

Many were wondering if they would ever taste their favorite culinary dishes from Quinoa again. Fortunately, the answer is yes!

The new location in the center of Doylestown is perfect for catering to the dining crowd of the area and providing a spot to indulge in Mexican and Peruvian culinary delicacies in a central, convenient location. For those who have yet to dine at Quinoa, some of the delicious offerings you’ll soon be able to savor include red snapper tacos, ceviche, enchiladas tres colores, fajitas and the popular Peruvian hot chocolate, to name a few of the tempting menu items.

This BYO establishment enables you to enjoy your favorite adult beverage with your meal, so once the doors open, be sure to bring in your favorite red wine, white wine or other welcome libation.

Congratulations to the Quinoa team on the new location and future opening. We’re so glad that you’re back!
