Ligaya Figueras of Sauce broke the news yesterday that brothers Adam and Jason Tilford of Milagro Modern Mexican (20 Allen Avenue, Webster Groves; 314-962-4300) plan to open a new venture called Mission at 6235 Delmar Boulevard in the Delmar Loop, the address vacated just last week by the Delmar Restaurant and Lounge.

Gut Check had a chance to chat with Adam Tilford outside the future Mission space this afternoon. He revealed to us that, in fact, he's planning not one, but two ventures for the Loop.

Tilford says Mission, named after the taqueria-heavy district of San Francisco, will be a "late-night taco joint."

"It's not going to be a typical Mexican restaurant," he adds. The vibe will be more "cool bar," including music from local bands. The menu will feature tacos, tortas and burritos.

Mission's lease begins on October 1. Tilford expects the renovation, led by SPACE Architecture + Design Studio (4168 Manchester Avenue; 314-647-2020), to be completed in about three months.
