For the late lunch crowd, good news from the Taco Sisters.
Fans of Molly and Katy Richard’s smoked fish tacos and brisket burritos can now let the noon rush die down before strolling over to the Caribbean mango-yellow taco shack on Johnston at Vermilion. The Richard sisters have expanded their hours from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and added a Saturday lunch, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. So no worries if that staff meeting runs long, you can have your say and eat lunch too.
