Buzz Bait Taqueria is a new fast-casual restaurant in Old Town focusing on serving the best premium fish tacos with a chicken option to fill tortillas, rice bowls and salads. Procured from various sources, the fish they use is of the highest grade. The menu delivers a fresh take on fish tacos, offering items such as a one of a kind poke tuna and a slow smoked glazed salmon. The Sapporo beer battered cod, the very taco that inspired Buzz Bait, may sound like it’s been done before, but they promise you, they’re doing it better!
Buzz Bait Taqueria was inspired by Marc Malnati’s time spent looking for the perfect fish taco. He found it up the Pacific coast from Newport Beach, California while vacationing and was never able to find another taco that topped that experience.
A menu as unique as Buzz Bait Taqueria’s requires an equally unique restaurant space. The concept of the space is city meets the sea; a mixture of beachy elements that remind you of eating freshly caught fish on the beach, with urban elements, reminiscent of classic Chicago architecture.
