Stylish Global Taco-and-Taquileria Scene Hits the Hill – Under a sea of dark copper lily pad-like Edison lights, this dim-lit taco and tequila joint brings Meatpacking style to fratastic Murray Hill. From the sleek designers behind Avenue nightclub, this unpretentious 85-seat, lounge-like eatery brings star power to the Latin food scene: owner Derek Axelrod, former head of celebrity product placement at his family’s French Connection apparel, and L.A.’s chef Chris Goossen, former personal chef to Mark Wahlberg.
With a 35-tequila-bottle chandelier, rustic brown banquettes and dark wood tables, this sexy resto puts a new spin on “global tacos,” filling the casual staple with sushi-grade albacore, jalapeno teriyaki chicken or crisp barbecue pork ends.
Carnitas fans be warned: Pulled pork lovers must venture out with Kurobuta pork belly, or other sophisto-bites on the “authentic” taco menu.
Start with the grilled corn elote, dusted in chili butter and Cotija cheese, take in the mellow beats of Kanye and Lauren Hill overhead, and sample the hundred bottles of tequila on display. This is Murray Hill, growing up.
