A trendy taco chain has plans to open in Court Square early next year.

Tacombi, which has six restaurants in New York City and one in Montauk, plans to open an establishment early next year on 43rd Avenue. The operators went before Community Board 2 last week in their quest for a liquor license.

The company plans to open at 27-10 43rd Ave., the site of an existing garage, and serve traditional Mexican items such as tacos and quesadillas, as well as an array of juices. The restaurant will offer the same menu as its other establishments.

The operators said the décor and vibe will be similar to their other restaurants, where it will be a brightly-colored space attractive to children and families. They said their aim is to attract residents and nearby workers.

Tacombi is a chain that began in 2005 when its founders bought a 1963 Volkswagen Kombi bus in Mexico City, went traveling, and then used the vehicle later as a food truck selling tacos and tortas. They then opened their first restaurant in Manhattan in 2009 and have expanded since.

The operators plan to have 17 tables and 64 seats at the 43rd Avenue venue, with a separate bar at the front with five bar stools. They plan to open daily from 11 a.m. through 1 a.m.

Community Board 2 gave Tacombi the green light in terms of its liquor license and the restaurant now awaits the State Liquor Authority’s approval.

Care to elaborate? It seems to me to be a decent location off of Jackson Ave. Its proximity to other popular restaurants such as X’ian Famous Foods, Chipotle, and Levante as well at Starbucks and Partners Coffee puts them an in area of the neighborhood that seems to becoming more focused on providing eating and drinking establishments for residents.
