Joe Tachovsky, a longtime restaurateur who ran a popular King Street restaurant in the 1980s that he tweaked and moved to Minneapolis, is behind a future Johnson Street spot where Mildred’s used to be.
The Spot at 827 E. Johnson St. will be “a neighborhood kind of restaurant that serves good food,” he said.
In addition to opening and running Samba Brazilian Grill for a while, in the mid-1980s Tachovsky had Porto Bananas on King Street in the space that later became the little Village Café.
Porto Bananas was before my time in this fair city, so I hope all y'alls that have been talking it up wistfully on DPF aren't raising my expectations unduly. [shakes fist menacingly]
