The Blue Light Speak Cheesy

$$$$

Imagine a Taco Bell breakfast taco, but made entirely from high-quality ingredients. That’s what you’ll get on Taco Wednesday at The Blue Light Speak Cheesy, a breakfast speakeasy housed in Greenpoint’s zero-proof cocktail bar, Getaway. The double-decker breakfast tacos start with two handmade tortillas—one corn, one flour—which are welded together with a layer of cheesy refried beans. The outside is shellacked with griddled cheese. Inside, fluffy eggs meld with even more cheese, soyrizo, fresh herbs, radish, and avocado. Every bite contains at least five unique textures, which is what really sets this taco apart from other NYC tacos, both breakfast and otherwise.
