Updated October 28, 2014: And more tacos arrive in the neighborhood. Announced earlier today via Facebook, Kokopelli will be opening their doors this Thursday in Wicker Park in the former location of Between Peruvian Cafe at 1324 N. Milwaukee Avenue. Originally planned for late September their official date is October 30, 2014. See you there.

Published August 13, 2014 - As we were announcing the news that Authentaco had officially opened their doors at 1141 N. Ashland, Chicago Magazine was reporting, yet another, taqueria was in the works for Wicker Park.

Kokopelli will be opening in the location formerly Between Peruvian Cafe & Lounge at 1324 N. Milwaukee Avenue. Inspired by a trip to Tijuana, owner and native Chicagoan Gerardo Santiago, will focus on seafood and vegetable tacos. A typical taco will be the Kraken: grilled octopus in a cilantro marinade with avocado and cheese. Pork tacos are not at the top of the list. 

Tacos can be paired with a number of salsas. Three guacamoles, tostadas and ceviche will also be featured on the menu. 

Look for Kokopelli to open at 1324 N. Milwaukee Avenue in the middle of September.
