If Lou Malnati's and Kamehachi opened a taco place, what type of tacos would they serve? Well, deep dish icon Lou Malnati's and classic sushi restaurant Kamehachi are opening a taco place together, as previously reported, and it turns out Buzz Bait Taqueria will focus on fish tacos—including of the oversized eight-inch variety, Chicago Magazine reports.

The fast-casual restaurant will mostly serve regular-sized (four inch) tacos in addition to sides. Malnati's applied for a liquor license for the space at 1529 N. Wells, so presumably alcohol will also be available. Look for a patio space and a mid-August opening.
