Tacocraft continues to expand throughout South Florida, with the opening of their latest concept in Victoria Park opening on December 8. The 3,600-square-foot Mexican restaurant and taqueria bar will feature Tulum-inspired decor, an extensive 1,500-square-foot covered patio, a to-go counter, and a staggering back bar featuring their collection of over 400 tequilas and mezcals.
Marc Falsetto has assembled an all-star partnership for this venture including Anthony Bruno, Pat Marzano, Paul Castronova and Miami Dolphins legend Dan Marino. The group is eager to bring the upcoming location to South Florida and allow guests to experience the next stage of Tacocraft’s growth, with several other locations in the works.
“The new Victoria Park location really embodies the evolution of the Tacocraft brand. We’ve gotten to know our patrons much better, and we love that they are looking for an elevated experience, says Falsetto. You will see that the decor and menu have grown up in a sense from our first location on Himmarshee. We’re excited to see how people respond, and will continue to raise the bar on our interpretation of refined Mexcian cuisine curated by Executive Chef Robbyns Martinez.”
The Victoria Park menu will be the debut of the new menus that will soon be available at the South Miami and Lauderdale by the Sea locations, featuring new dishes like the Achiote Brick Chicken, a boneless half chicken marinated with achiote guajillo rub and served with heirloom tomatoes and cucumber salad; Pan Seared Grouper served with sauteed with sweet potatoes and baby kale; a fire grilled Skirt Steak served with chile de arbol chimichurri, refried black beans and crispy tostones. The menu will also include a raw bar selection with locally-sourced seafood plates, like the Snapper Ceviche made with citrus marinated snapper, oranges, avocado, red onion, heirloom tomatoes, cilantro and lime; Tuna Poke Tacos served with avocado, ponzu, seaweed, spicy mayo and crispy wontons; Wild Shrimp Aguachile topped with cucumbers, red onion, avocado, cilantro and spicy chilled serrano water. Guests can also expect to see Tacocraft’s signature tacos on the menu, including the Crispy Shrimp taco made with tempura-battered shrimp, mango salsa, spicy mayo and cilantro; Korean Short Rib with sweet and spicy glaze, pickled cucumbers, asian slaw, green onion and gochujang aioli; Exotic Shroom made with mushroom confit, roasted corn, cotija cheese, truffle crema and cilantro.
Tacocraft’s interior design is also being revamped, with the latest location inspired by the sophisticated, yet relaxed ambiance of Tulum. The restaurant will feature custom furniture and fabrics made in Bali and Indonesia, creating an energetic, inviting and lively environment that transports guests south of the border with every look and bite. Tacocraft Victoria Park will also feature ample indoor and outdoor seating, with 160-seats and plenty of booth seating.
On his second location with Falsetto, Anthony Bruno comments, “We’ve seen great success in our first venture with Tacocraft in Lauderdale by the Sea, and we’re excited to continue that momentum with the newest location. We love the larger footprint and outdoor seating at this location, and look forward to welcoming our guests this fall.”
