          oh interesting - that's where I am but I haven't heard a thing about it. Will research...

            One of the CL postings is titled "Habana + Valencia = bode$ga" Could this be a new restaurant from Michael Young of Valencia Luncheria? He used to be executive at Habana.

              just saw that too and am very excited at the prospect!

        2. good detective work plien69 – they're hoping to open thursday 6/9.

          1. Bodega Taco Bar is open, stopped in last night for a quick taco sampling. Michael Young has done another great job. the space looked great, menu was so interesting and staff was spot on. This will be a great addition to Fairfield.

            On my very quick visit, i tried two tacos, that cam in soft corn tortillas., the first was a Panko crusted Mahi Mahi taco and the second was a Pastor taco. At $4 each they were both well filled with very tasty ingredients. Tacos were offered with two sauces, one of which was a fresh tasting salsa verde. More details on my next visit. I look forward to going back for a full meal.

            Good luck and welcome to Fairfield.

              $4.00!!?? for one taco? you have got to be kidding. i'll think i'll eat the tacos at los gemelos in port chester, and if i am in fairfield go to one of the authentic places in black rock. or better yet go to taco tuesday at The Shack.

              1. re: food4mood

                $4.00 may be high but give it try first. I would rather spend $4 and a great taco that 2 would be filing than 2.50 for a taco that wouldn't file your mouth. Los Gemelos tacos are good but someone should be able to do better. Good luck Bodega.

            2. It was well worth the price. While I love the tacos at El Charito, Tacos Mexico in Norwalk and la Michoacana in Bridgeport. Bodega is a different type of place. The flavors and ingredients are so fresh and delicious but used in a different way than a traditional tacqueiria.

              Give it a try, this place is good for Fairfields restaurant scene.
