A new taco restaurant is coming to the West End this holiday season.

Owner Tom Voskuil plans to open Taqueria Picoso, which is currently in the final stages of buildout, at 1472 N. Beauregard St. in December, according to Voskuil’s LinkedIn page. The restaurant will be located in the Shops at Mark Center shopping plaza.

The 2,736 square foot space was formerly occupied by Illusions Thai Cafe. The Department of Planning and Zoning approved the special use permit to add 20 seats of outdoor dining to the restaurant on July 25.

Taqueria Picoso will serve authentic $3 tacos with tortillas made from imported Oaxacan corn and meats cooked on a vertical al pastor roaster, according to Voskuil’s LinkedIn.

Voskuil has 25 years of experience in the restaurant industry. He launched Green Pig Bistro in Arlington and was a partner in two restaurants recognized for Food & Wine Magazine’s Best New Chef Award.
