Taco Asylum Opens This Week at THE CAMP
Greg Daniels, Wil Dee and Alkesh Patel, a.k.a. the people who brought you the wildly successful Haven Gastropub in Orange, have finally put the finishing touches on their CAMP offering, called taco asylum, what they describe as a "non-traditional" taco shop. The official opening is Thursday, Jan. 13 at 11 a.m.
From then on, it will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at the CAMP (2937 S. Bristol St., Ste. B102, Costa Mesa, CA 92626), between Native Foods and SEED People's Market.
