A new eatery featuring fresh tacos, a large cocktail menu and in-house games like shuffleboard and pingpong has opened on Lake Street in Cedar-Isles-Dean.

Taberna Street Tacos opened on Aug. 19. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of The Foundry apartment building at 3126 W. Lake St.

The menu is appropriately taco-heavy with traditional and modern, more experimental tacos, according to a press release. Taberna has regular food and drink specials, including a $7 weekday lunch and an all-day happy hour on Sunday. The restaurant features a large selection of games, including darts, foosball, pingpong, pool and shuffleboard.

“We want Taberna to be a great place to sip, celebrate, meet, eat and enjoy games and sports,” Corlett said in a release.
