Big Star, Mercadito Collaborate . . . Finally!

Stephanie Izard (Girl & The Goat), Michael Kornick (Ada Street/DMK Burger Bar/MK) and Giuseppe Tentori (Boka/GT Fish & Oyster) each created a signature taco for Mercadito's monthly program for Share Our Strength, and now it's time to get ready for another hot chef.
Big Star's Justin Large is up next, for the entire month of May, with Taco de Ostiones, fried oyster tacos with spicy radish slaw. As executive chef of Bucktown's most popular spot for tacos and whiskey, Large is certain not to disappoint.
His Taco for Strength taco will be available for lunch (three per order) for $12.50 and dinner (four per order) for $16.50. Five percent of the sales from the tacos will be donated to Share Our Strength.
