And with these two words, the taco game stakes around town just got serious: Centro Taco. A new home for gator-pibil tacos and stiff pours of Mexican soda from Richard Hales, now open in Downtown. (See the slideshow.)

Yes, the guy behind Blackbrick and Sakaya Kitchen is at it again. Except here, he’s going the Mexico-City-street-food route and fusing it with a few local touches—think gator-pibil tacos, Panther-coffee vinegars, pickled grapefruit and choco tacos using Azucar’s almond ice cream. (This might be a good time to introduce you to the menu.)

The vibe here: Abuela’s-casita-meets-a-graffiti-artist’s-loft. Witness: yellow floral wallpaper, framed family photos, hand-painted eyes from Ahol Sniffs Glue and a portrait of Bill Murray as a general up on the wall. Abuelas love the Murray.

Now, you’re probably wondering about the beer. And we’re here to tell you there are eight of them on tap along with three rotating aguas frescas and some Mexican soda. And we’re also here to tell you that there’s a dim sum cart rolling around with stuff like duck-carnitas tacos and ceviche for you and a group of tortilla aficionados to partake in. And we’re also also here to tell you...

Nah. That’s it.
