Eater DC gets on the horn with Rammy Award-winning restaurateur Mark Kuller of acclaimed eateries Proof and Estadio for a quick Q&A. During the chat, Kuller dishes a bit more about his plans for future restaurants. Even more interesting: his comments about the one that got away. “I still think we need a good taqueria — I was going to build a taqueria in the space that El Centro is in and the landlord reneged on our deal the day of signing.”

This begs the question: what would Richard Sandoval‘s critically panned taqueria be like under Kuller’s direction instead? Would those repulsive cactus tacos (pictured) taste any better?
