Seven Lives is opening a standalone taqueria in Kensington Market

Seven Lives, the popular SoCal- and Tijuana-style taco stall that operates out of El Gordo Fine Foods on Augusta, is graduating to more permanent digs at 69 Kensington Avenue. Chef and owner Sean Riehl plans to have the new space ready to go in early April, and will be expanding his offering beyond tacos to include more seafood options as well (the stall will be closed on Tuesdays during the renovation process). No word yet on what this means for Miss Cora’s Kitchen, which currently occupies the space.
