Le Bec Fin seemingly melting down over the weekend isn’t the only bad news coming out of Center City: Pure Tacos, the local branch of Ted Schroeder’s healthy, gluten-free Ocean City taco shop that opened last July on Chestnut Street and home to the Grub Street-endorsed cheeseburger taco, is closing tomorrow after service wraps. Zagat Philly reports the year-round quick-serve restaurant struggled to find its footing after spinning out of a seasonal, boardwalk operation. In addiiton to closing up here, the original location at the shore is reportedly not reopening this summer. So looks like tomorrow’s going to be something of a Double Bummer edition of Taco Tuesday.
