Status: Open today at 11 a.m.
The Center City outpost of Pure Tacos opened today at 11 a.m. on Chestnut Street, after a few delays and setbacks with the building. Eater got a sneak peek at the new space last week, and all systems are go this morning. Pure Tacos originally launched their gourmet taco shack on the OC Boardwalk, but found a huge audience, and have come west down the AC Expressway, landing in Rittenhouse.
The menu is completely gluten-free (co-owner Ted Schroeder suffers from Celiac Disease), and filled with very cheffy taco options like orange chili fish, and beef brisket. All menu items can be made into tacos, nachos, or salads. The prices are quite reasonable, especially for Center City, and join other recent big lunchy openings like Honeygrow and HipCityVeg.
