Kahan's Taquiera Has a Name (But No Opening Date Yet)

The forthcoming Wicker Park taco bar from Paul Kahan and crew has been named Big Star. The menu will include tacos al pastor, fish, veggie as well as a weekly "specialty flavor," and the bar will feature whiskeys, tequilas and a drinks menu developed by Michael Rubel (Violet Hour). Big Star is set to open "in the next month or so," according to a press release. But if you simply cannot wait to sample the Mexican street fare, snag a ticket for the James Beard Foundation dinner at The Publican on Oct. 18, and you'll get an invitation to the complimentary after party at Big Star.
