Rumors are buzzing that Boston mega-restaurateur Ken Oringer is planning to open a taco joint in the Lansdowne Street space formerly occupied by Tiki Bar. John Delpha, formerly of Mistral and Sorellina is attached. Allegedly, it will be less upscale and more affordable than Oringer’s other restaurants, but we’ll see how that goes. So, just to recap: Oringer is currently operating three restaurants (Clio, Uni, and Toro) and has two more on deck (the aforementioned taco joint (rumored to be called La Verdad) and KO Prime, which will open later this year in the current space of Spire). We do believe that constitutes an empire.
