Borrachito

$$$$

The Garret East is a casual cocktail bar in the East Village, and Borrachito is a little taco spot all the way in the back of it. It’s in a semi-separate room with about eight little tables, although if you’d rather eat your tacos in the bar up front, they’ll bring them over for you. The tacos here tend to be on the meatier side - they have one called the “Pork Bomb,” which is really just a large mound of pulled pork, salsa, and chicharron on a tortilla. But we prefer the short rib one, and you might see us eating a couple of those here the next time we need a cocktail and a late-night taco in Alphabet City.

The Garret

There are two Garrets in the city, and the one on the west side is a speakeasy above a Five Guys. It’s a cool space, but expect a crowd and top-40.

Taqueria Diana

This is not a taqueria. This is a temple to the holy Mission burrito. Pray before it, lest you be forsaken.

Loverboy

Loverboy is a casual cocktail bar in the East Village from the people behind Mother’s Ruin. Stop by for a snack and a slushy drink after work.
