The tacos are coming, the tacos are coming! Casa Verde, the new taqueria from the team behind Jamaica Plain’s Tres Gatos and Centre Street Cafe, is scheduled to open in February, according to the Improper Bostonian.
As previously reported by Jamaica Plain News, the owners intend for their newest venture, which will take over Ghazal’s former digs at 711 Centre St., to be fun, family-friendly and affordable, featuring a range of tacos on the sample menu they shared with the community last year.
Per the Improper Bostonian:
The menu will lean toward traditional street food, with 10 types of tacos, including lamb al pastor with grilled pineapple and shrimp a la diabla with chile marinade and cabbage curtido. There will also be tortas with housemade bread, a couple of ceviches, gorditas, tostadas, tamales, larger entree plates and dessert.
The new Mexican joint will share many qualities with the owners’ other neighborhood spots: a cozy atmosphere, JP employees and, yes, a 3 percent hospitality surcharge that goes to back-of-house workers.

Between Casa Verde’s impending opening and the arrival of the highly regarded Chilacates taqueria on Amory Street last summer, JP is quickly becoming a prime neighborhood for the taco crowd.
