New Taqueria in the West End Planning to Open in December

Taqueria Senora Lola ain’t the only new taqueria game coming to town.

In the West End, Taqueria Picoso (1472 N. Beauregard Street) is eyeing a December opening at The Shops at Mark Center, according to employees working on the building. The spot was formerly a Thai restaurant, according to Alexandria Living.

The taco-centric eatery comes from local restaurant vet Tom Voskuil, formerly of Chef Geoff’s, Tallula/Eatbar and Green Pig Bistro.

“We are in the process of opening a very authentic taqueria!” Voskuil says on his LinkedIn page. “We have approvals for our vertical al pastor roaster. Importing corn from Oaxaca for our tortilla machine, which will produce 720 tortillas/hour. $3 tacos that taste like true tacos from CDMX.”

Taqueria Picoso obtained an ABC permit and Voskuil said the restaurant will serve margaritas and micheladas.
