HYDE PARK — Edgar Vazquez has come a long way since he was Madonna’s “butler,” and now he’s opening his first restaurant on his own after years of working for others, a new Hyde Park taco restaurant.

Vazquez is about a month and a half away from opening Taco Station, a Mexican street food-style restaurant in the former Ribs ‘N’ Bibs space at 5300 S. Dorchester Ave.

He said Wednesday that he’s captured the “savant” chef who worked for him at the former Forno Diablo in Lincoln Park to come up with a menu of 10 “old school” Mexican tacos and some new experiments like guacamole with feta or pomegranate seeds.
