Antique Taco
A Wicker Park taqueria with a vintage vibe

Chicago

No longer just vulgar slang used by dudes who specialize in picking up widowers shopping for collectibles, Antique Taco's a husband and wife catering team's new brick-n-mortar mash-up of an upscale taqueria and a Cracker Barrel, sporting barnwood tables crafted by the folks at FoundRe:, mismatched china the owners culled from secondhand shops, and, of course, for-sale antiques ranging from glassware to old Jays potato chip tins, possibly the source of Cutler's second chin.

Ladled onto housemade tortillas, fillings have an appropriate farmers' market flair: grilled Slagel Farm ribeye w/ heirloom tomato salsa & queso enchilado, adobo-rubbed carnitas w/ tamarind-glazed bacon, avocado, spinach & queso fresco, and tempura fish w/ Sriracha tartar and smoked cabbage, which could kick its habit using a cabbage patch. Non-namesake culinary creations, meanwhile, run from biscuits w/ guajillo-kicked lobster gravy, to beer-battered cheese curds smothered in chorizo chili, while sweet endings include horchata milkshakes, and cilantro & mint chocolate chip Upside-Down Ice Cream Cones, which sounds dangerously close to My Ice Cream Just Fell On The Floor Cones.

They're also bringing the booze, spiking seasonal, housemade agua fresca w/ vodka, and kicking out margs infused with rosemary, which sounds like the name of a sexy antique you picked up while shopping for the ultimate collectible.
