John's Tacos Pops Up in Wynwood For Art Basel

John's Tacos is popping up in Wynwood for Art Basel. John O'Connell, who takes over the Josh's Deli space evenings from 6 p.m.-midnight, is bringing his tacos south for Art Basel. O'Connell said that he decided to open a temporary space during Basel because "pop-ups seem to be very fashionable these days."

The John's Tacos pop-up will be located at the home of BeeFree Media at 2312 N. Miami Ave., serving a selection of tacos, beer, wine, margaritas, and a specialty cocktail from December 3-8 so hungry gallerinas can eat well.

Selections include crusted mahi-mahi with vegetable slaw and chipotle aioli; chicken tinga with goat cheese and pickled onion; and adobo-rubbed skirt steak with cress cotija cheese and sala roja. Chips and dips will be available, as well as a selection of beer, wine, margaritas and a specialty cocktail featuring Miami Club rum (distilled in Wynwood).

The menu is still being finalized but the prices will be "affordable."
