Estrella Taqueria: New Taco Place Opening in North York

To quote Post City:

"Taking inspiration from the famous Big Star in Chicago is Estrella Taqueria, which will open at 4899 Yonge St. later this month. The upcoming 300-seat restaurant will offer tequila, bourbon, signature cocktails and a rotating taco menu, as well as gourmet creations like duck confit nachos. Co-owner Otta Zapotocky (a former manager at Nota Bene, as well as current co-owner of L’Avenue on Bayview) has designed the restaurant to be an easy place for uptowners to pop in for a meal and cocktails with friends"

      Is that Yonge and Sheppard? Oops...I was thinking that it was Yonge and Eglinton. Sorry! My mistake. I'm going to change the title.

          That's ok. I have my moments too ;)

        If you look at a map of GTA, it is exactly midtown.

      3. There is a place in San Francisco with exactly the same name. I wonder if they copied the menu also.

            According to BlogTo, they're slated to open the 1st week of November.

            1. "Baja fish tacos with salsa verde, crema, pickled chilis and slaw, $4.95 each "

              Is that for EACH Taco, or Each order (presumably of 3, from the picture).

              If the former, they are out of their minds.

              Would love a good taco joint N of the 401.

                Not only is that per taco, but the tacos are two-biters.

                  1. re: graydyn

                    IMO $4.95 for ONE taco (a two-biter) is too much even if it is good...especially when you're trying to fill the number of seats in that huge restaurant.

                    Good luck to them because at that price point they won't be around for long.

                      based on your logic, you better grab a taco quickly at Barrio Coreano. All of their taco's are $5
