Tacocina

Perfect For:Day DrinkingDogs

Tacocina is a taco spot from the people behind Shake Shack, which would be pretty exciting on its own. But it’s also located in Domino Park, a new outdoor space on the water in Williamsburg, and they have a bunch of picnic tables with great views of the river and Manhattan. So, the wait to order at this counter-service spot can stretch over an hour. Once you do get to the front of the line, get the fried mushroom and shrimp tacos, and some small plates, like cheese chicharrones and chips and guacamole. But the main reason you should come here is to drink margaritas on the water with a group. Have one friend get here early and wait in line, or day-drink here on weekends.

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