Perhaps it’s Kogi’s example out in L.A., but the Korean taco has thus far thrived mostly as a mobile foodstuff in New York. Seoul Station closed a while back and there is Bann Next Door in Hell’s Kitchen, plus a few offerings here and there, but meanwhile the Korilla truck, the Kimchi Taco Truck, and Krave, over in New Jersey, have been rolling robustly. (The Kimchi Taco Truck is supposedly opening a storefront, but we haven’t heard anything about that lately.) Well, Bon Chon is about to add another permanent source for the tacos: Midtown Lunch learns that the Asian-chicken mecca will open a Korean tacos and sandwiches joint on Nassau Street in the financial district. Great news, though we wish they’d picked a different name: Kortako, really? [Midtown Lunch, Earlier]
