Founded by restaurateur Marc Falsetto, South Florida’s own Handcrafted Hospitality Group is preparing to launch the next outpost of its Tacocraft Taqueria & Tequila Bar. The concept, which Falsetto co-owns in partnership with Anthony Bruno, Pat Marzano, Dan Marino, and Paul Castronovo, will launch its fourth location at 3300 N University Dr. this June, in Coral Springs’ Village Square complex.
Encompassing 4,500 square feet, the Coral Springs location will be Tacocraft’s largest, with seating for a total of 200 guests inside and outside. A recent press release describes the space, created by P2 Design, as one in which “Tacocraft’s notorious energetic ambience will be displayed with a modern and chic, yet comfortable blend of décor including the concept’s iconic bright green accents, colorful works of hand selected art, woven light fixtures and velvet seating.”
Created by Handcrafted’s corporate chef Robbyns Martinez, the menu will “offer an explosion of flavor with highlights including four specialty guacamoles plus a Guacamole Flight featuring the Classic, Tropical, Sweet Potato and Bacon & Corn guacamoles; snacks like Tuna Poke Tacos, Oxtail Empanadas, Elote “Street Corn”, and the concept’s stack of Famous Ultimate Nachos.”
Further describing the menu, the press release continues: “Paying homage to some of the classics with a creative, unique twist, Tacocraft’s eclectic lineup of tacos includes Chicken Al Pastor – charred pineapple, crispy kale, pickled red onion and avocado-tomatillo sauce; Carne Asada – grilled skirt steak, queso fresco, refried black beans, garlic chimichurri aioli and watercress; Korean Short Rib – pickled cucumbers, Asian slaw, green onion and gochujang aioli; Chorizo & Egg – cotija cheese, potato hash, fried egg and cilantro; and an array of Reserve Tacos and new additions to the menu, such as The Smash Burger – prime beef patty, gringo cheese, shredded lettuce, pickle, onions and special sauce; Birria Taco and Hawaiian Big Eye Tuna. There is also an array of main plates, salads, sizzling Fajitas, and decadent desserts including Churro Ice Cream Sandwich, Tequila Caramel Flan and Tres Leches Bread Pudding.”
Tacocraft’s three current locations are to be found in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, and Plantation Walk.
“The first Tacocraft really made its mark in the restaurant scene and quickly became the jewel in the Handcrafted Hospitality crown,” says founder Marc Falsetto in the press release. “The opening at Plantation Walk really filled a hole in the food scene there and we’re hopeful we’ll be able to bring the same magic to Coral Springs.”
