Street Taco wants to be a sort of Tacombi meets Tijuana Picnic, but it isn’t really as good as either of those places. It’s a cool space, and it might be a fun spot to have some margaritas with friends, but you aren’t going to get a meal here that’ll feel worthy of a night out. Some of the tacos are fine, and others just aren’t great. Like the tiny one stuffed with tuna tartare that seems like it would be on the menu at a tacky wedding or a classy strip club. So if you’re in the neighborhood, and you just want some chips and tequila, come here. But if you’re looking for a full meal, head elsewhere.

Empellon Al Pastor
New York City will never be LA, Austin, San Diego, or Mexico, but we suddenly have some quality taco options to choose form. Add Empellón Al Pastor to that list.
For a relatively cheap place with ample space and good drinks, I’m not complaining. For the Seaport, it’s definitely a good option. Put this restaurant anywhere else though, and we’d keep on walking.

Tacombi @ Fonda Nolita
Tacombi has an awesome Mexican courtyard, and gets serious points for creativity. All in all, we back the place, especially now that they have a liquor license.
