Josef Centeno Opens Bäco Mercat on Monday

The Bäco

It's finally here! Lazy Ox Canteen chef Josef Centeno is opening Bäco Mercat for lunch this Monday to serve his proprietary taco/gyro/pizza invention the bäco, which has popped up over the years at the chef's various restaurants. We've been looking forward to Centeno's new spot for a while, and are excited to see he's elaborated on the bäzole concept he told us about in August, with a whole internationally-influenced selection. In fact, dude sounds a little obsessed with his creations, as he's even got a bäco soda in store! Update: The restaurant did not open as reported and has been pushed back. [Squid Ink]
