TAC Quick is still a GNR.

I thought it should have been more crowded on a Friday night -7:15-30 and it was never full during our time there-we left around 9:15. The food and service were really, really good. We brought two bottles of wine-a white and red- and a wine cooler was placed on the table right away. We ordered grilled squid, Nam Tok, Penang tofu, basil mussels and a seafood soup-forget the name but similar to Tom Kha but with seafood. All was delicious-the squid had the perfect chew and grilled flavor. The Nam Tok was tender, grilled and the bed of greens and mint was really nice-not the usual iceberg/romaine in lesser quality joints. The basil mussels were prepared well-not gritty and the soy/basil sauce was really nice. The Penang tofu had a lot of crisp peppers, onions and flavorful sauce and we ate every drop of sauce with rice. The soup was OK-it had a little too much greens that were underdone-a feat for soup so it had to be added later to a mother stock. We finished all but the soup. As it was a big B-day fete, I brought a Snickers Pie from Magnolia Bakery and the waitstaff brought extra plates and presented it complete with candle lit (I brought candles just in case). The whole bill including tax and tip was under $60-and everyone vowed to return with others. As the place was never full I wonder how it is doing. We will definately go back as it is an easy on/ easy off Red Line Sheridan stop.
TAC Quick is uprooting after more than a decade at Sheridan and Dakin, replacing another longstanding Lakeview eatery. TAC Quick, 3930 N. Sheridan Road, will replace the shuttered Fornello Trattoria at 1011 W. Irving Park Road, in the coming weeks.
