A new Mexican restaurant set to open in Boston is at work testing its product on willing customers at a sister restaurant. Casa Verde, on track to open sometime this month at 711 Centre St. in Jamaica Plain, is perfecting its taco game with chef Sean Callahan leading the charge.

Callahan (formerly Ten Tables) is churning out carne asada, papas y rajas, and chorizo tacos, along with tostadas and more during a "Taco Tuesday" each week at Tres Gatos until Casa Verde opens at the end of the month. These test tacos have been well documented on the forthcoming restaurant's Facebook page.

Casa Verde joins Tres Gatos and Centre Street Cafe in a mini restaurant domain in Jamaica Plain, where owners Keith Harmon, David Doyle, and Maricely Perez-Alers are in command of the casual, neighborhood-style eateries. This is the same group of restaurants that rolled out some bill structure changes late last year.

The cuisine at Casa Verde will include 10 varieties of taco, according to the Improper Bostonian, plus tortas, ceviches, and other entrees, ranging from $11-$17, as previously reported. The restaurant will also serve beer, wine, and liquor.
