We’ve eaten Chef Stupak’s food at numerous places, from his Alinea days through the wd50 day’s and into the various Empelllon sites. His food is consistently stellar, and the Taqueria is no exception. The menu changes periodically, but it’s always good. I tend to most...More

I am still in shock about this experience. My friend was visiting NYC and I decided to take her to a good mexican restaurant for Cinco de Mayo. The brunch menu was very unnatractive. The guacamole was ok. The tacos tasted HORRIBLE. Very dry, weird...More

Cinco de Mayo prix fixe menu. Uninventive, generally bland and overpriced. Presentation was lackluster, nothing special all around, and far from authentic Mexican food. Service is passable. Front room has obnoxiously load music. Lone high point was decent margaritas. I have no intention of returning.

Can’t believe how many positive reviews of this place. The tacos were about dried out pastrami and steak and the fish taco tasted like fried fish at a fast food—don’t the chef has ever heard of seasoning. The guacamole was average. We waited an inordinate...More

Great simple menu with variety. The tacos are great. So is the guacamole with all the different salsas. The front room is so loud, I am amazed that anyone could understand a word spoken. The back room only slightly quieter (meaning that conversation was difficult)....More

The best chips I've had! Great sampler of salsas and guacamole was great as well. Went with friends we all had tacos which were delicious and filling. I had the fish tacos, friend had the steak. Made reservation through open table.

A variety of fun and tasty tacos from duck to lamb to bacon to shrimp - all good. Guacamole was fresh and the different salsas all had different and unique flavors. Also very good service and reasonable price!

Stumbled upon this place. Great taqueria list of hard to find product. The sea bass tacos are excellent. The bartender gave me the wrong tequila from what I ordered much to my surprise an anejo extra at twice the cost. They covered that and covered...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
