Chicago’s newest food hall and market coming to the Loop this spring, Wells St. Market, adds to its lineup of food concepts, introducing California-inspired taqueria concept, Dos Toros Taqueria, and chef Takashi Yagihashi’s Japanese sushi counter and bar, Tabo Sushi.
Dos Toros Taqueria
Owned by brothers Oliver and Leo Kremer, this taco and burrito joint will serve up their West Coast taqueria experience, sourcing wholesome ingredients and featuring made-from-scratch recipes. The concept focuses on serving quality-Mexican dishes with a California twist, one burrito at a time. The menu is made up of Mission-style fare – take the Carnitas Burrito with 4-hour braised carnitas; tacos – the Carne Asada Taco wrapped in locally-made corn tortillas from El Milagro Tortilleria; and the seasonal-rotating Market Vegetables with butternut squash, cremini mushrooms, Shishito peppers and tuscan kale, among much more.
Brought to Wells St. Market by Michelin-Starred chef Takashi Yagihashi, Tabo Sushi will offer sushi and Japanese-inspired creations focusing on fresh, quality dishes and technique. The concept’s sushi counter sets the scene for a pop-in dining experience within the busy market, where guests can watch on as sushi and sashimi is hand-rolled in front of them. The menu features sushi, sashimi, nigiri, soups, appetizers, salads and desserts. Signature menu items include the Aburi Scottish Salmon Sashimi with tonburi and crispy ginger, Spicy Hamachi Specialty Roll with daikon sprouts, taro root and wasabi puree and the Maguro-Natto Hand Roll with tuna tartare and fermented soybeans, with standout sides such as Little Neck Red Miso Soup and Peekytoe Crab Chawanmushi (Egg Custard).
