So we found you a place to hide from it.
Quick, in here: Velvet Taco, a two-story mash note to the magic that happens when you wrap nice things in tortillas, opening tonight in the Gold Coast.
This comes from Dallas, a place that’s always going on about how it likes big things. Which probably explains the size of these tacos.
So you may find yourself ducking in here post-work for some buffalo chicken or Cuban Pig ones, the latter being filled with pickles, pulled pork and roasted ham. You could also get a can of Hamm’s with it. We did a “ham” thing there.
All the while, you’ll sit amid the subway-tiled splendor with big rolls of paper towels and bottles of hot sauce on the table. Not to mention a nice upstairs view of the... thing that is the Viagra Triangle.
Yes, there will inevitably be times when some sort of late-night voodoo places you smack in the middle of this neck of the woods. But rest assured, you’ll find all the sorbet-infused margaritas and fried-egg-topped, herb-goat-cheesed, highly baconed tater tots you could ever need at such an hour.
Which is probably just one order.
