The people behind La Carnita are opening a new restaurant, and it isn't going to be a taco place. Here is a link to Toronto Life article:

          Based on the thread title people may think "ah, 2nd location" and not click.. A lot of people are bored with tacos me included :)

            Bored with tacos...never :) But you're right! I tried to change the title, but they won't let me edit it.

              You could "flag" the post and put a note in there for a mod to change it. Have had success with that before :)

                1. re: ylsf

                  Ok. Done. We'll see if they change it for me :)

                More bored with tacos than pulled pork?

                1. re: julesrules

                  Most bored with pulled pork tacos...


                  I am not THAT bored with tacos.... just maybe tired of the people jumping on the bandwagon with mediocre results

                  1. re: ylsf

                    Thanks for the help earlier ylsf! As you can see, CH changed the title of the post for me.

          2. Sounds like they're biting Playa Cabana's new place which is opening, Hacienda which is going to have a massive smoker and do a proper Tex Mex'ish thing...looking forward to that!!!

            1. This opened on the weekend I think. Anyone go? Might go Wednesday night depending on what I hear.

                  Speaking of Nick, what happened to his own restaurant aspirations? Thought that was suppose to happen a while back.

                  1. re: ylsf

                    rumours: not really about this thread, but he had trouble finding a spot he liked. hes consulting now. but i hear he has plans of working on a new concept with a new partner. he may still have his own place as early as this fall.
