~UNO DOS TACOS~ from Adriano Paganini of Super Duper, Lolinda, Beretta, and Starbelly is getting ready to open on Wednesday May 21st. The project, as mentioned last year, was originally located on Polk Street (which just closed) and is reopening in the former Sellers Markets space, with 4,500 square feet to grow into. There’s room for 80 people inside, plus an additional 80 on the outdoor patio. Seating includes smaller tables for two, as well as communal tables and outdoor picnic tables for larger groups.
On the menu, you’ll find tacos, burritos, and salads made with high-quality meats and produce, all served with housemade tortillas and salsas. Tortillas are made to order on a fancy tortilla machine in the open kitchen, and protein choices include carne asada, chicken tinga, pork carnitas, lengua, and fish. The beer-battered and fried fish taco is the signature item, and is served with cabbage and chipotle crema. Tacos are $3.25 each, $4.50 for fish, and burritos are $6.50 for vegetarian or $7.25 for meat. Salads and platters range from $7 to $9.50, and beverages include Mexican sodas, beer, and wine. They’ve also got a full bar (hello, alfresco happy hour), but the cocktail list is still a work in progress.
To start, they’re only open for lunch, but dinner service will be coming soon. We’ll let you know when we have updates on the cocktail list and hours. As for what’s moving into the Uno Dos space on Polk (at 2227 Polk St. at Vallejo), we’ll keep you posted on that too. 595 Market St. at 2nd St., 415-974-6922.
