, a new taqueria and cantina, opens at 5 p.m. today on South Pearl Street in Platt Park, and while this city is dotted with taquerias, especially on Federal Boulevard, Uno Mas, which means "one more" in Spanish, isn't a carbon copy of those -- it's better, says Patrick Mangold-White, who owns Uno Mas, along with Kaos Pizzeria and Gaia Bistro, both of which are on the same block as the new taqueria. "This is about whole animal production, farm-to-plate and getting the food from our smokers into your mouth," he tells me, adding, too, that "the food is more elevated when it comes to freshness and seasonality." And then there's the part about chef Drew Middleton, who's making good use of that outdoor smoker, roasting his own pigs and chickens, whole briskets and vegetables.
