Things appear to finally be picking up speed at the future downtown location of Nashville Street Tacos. Located at 129 Second Avenue just north of Broadway, the restaurant was first reported on by the Nashville Business Journal back in May of last year, with the "gourmet taco shop" planning an August opening. Now, according to a source associated with the project, they are shooting to open sometime the first part of March. Owner Steve Kovach originally told the Business Journal that it would "feature mahi-mahi, steak and chicken roasted on mesquite and [would] allow customers to create their own tacos at their table with their chosen meat and about 15 fixings." No word yet on further menu details or changes.
According to the LinkedIn profile for the restaurant's operations manager, the same group also appears to be working on another downtown project called May's Counter Chicken & Waffles. A restaurant by the same name opened in Tucson, Arizona in 2010. When contacted, a manager told Eater that they are not expanding to Nashville, but one of their owners just moved to town. No word yet on a location or time frame, so do send along any and all intel to the tipline.
