If you know me at all you know I'm loco about good tacos - so imagine my delight when I saw this sign of good things to come at Jax Beach! Ola to the Yucatan Taco Stand!
So - my sister and I were scoping out a lunch spot Saturday - she may have thought I was crazy when I saw this sign and promptly parked the Prius in front of the Eclectic Galleries, next to Pineapple Post! Peering through to the courtyard, I could see the place was still under construction, so we went to see what we could see. A friend of the chef came along and was waved in - so we slipped in along with him. Inside we met managing partner Doug Znidar who gave us the nickel tour. WOW - you are going to LOVE this place! BEAUTIFUL design - awesome lighting fixtures! The courtyard is being equipped with a fountain - complete with a "fire feature" so you KNOW that's going to be equally stunning.
Doug says they will make the tortillas fresh on the spot - there is a small exhibition kitchen area with a tortilla press right there where you can watch them being made! The menu was still under wraps for another week, so no hints there. Bookmark their website - they should have it up in another week as well, and they are planning a late July opening! See you there fellow foodies!
We ate at Yucatan last night, and we were not impressed with the food. The place was nice, but the food was less than outstanding.ReplyDelete
The house magaritas were not very good, and tasted like cheap tequlia even though they claimed to be 1800. They were out of Presidente, and when they brought a Dos Equis Amber, it was miller lite, served in a plastic cup, claiming no glass allowed outside. She went back to get the bottle and returned with a different dark beer, since they were out of Dos Equis, in a cup with a bottle.
They are new, and one of the owners talked with us, and repeatedly said they are still trying to get their feet.
I hope it will improve. They have a good location and have spent a lot of money to make a nice place.
