“We’re constantly look at new ways to shake things up. We’ve been at Seven Mile for the last year and a half and our menu has been popular there, but we wanted to create something new too,” said Sami Ladeki, owner and founder. “Chef Alfie has always wanted to create an expansive taco menu – and here we are. So many options!”
