New York roots are staying at 718 State St. in Santa Barbara.
Taking over the spot of the former Gandolfo’s New York Deli, which closed late last year, will be Goa Taco, which started a few years ago in a Brooklyn food market stand and then migrated to two Manhattan shops.
Goa Taco, which focuses on South Asian- and Mediterranean-inspired paratha tacos, now has a presence in Los Angeles as well, and is aiming for a May opening on State Street, founder and chef Duvaldi Marneweck said.
Gandolfo’s opened on State Street mid-2015.
