Yellow Rose is filling a Texas-shaped hole in New York City’s restaurant scene. It’s run by a duo who make their own tortillas out of Sonoran flour (which is, fun fact, one of the oldest wheat varieties in North America and tastes so buttery that it temporarily made me angry to be an East Coaster).
Over the last several months, Yellow Rose has hosted weekend pop ups at places like Doris in Bed-Stuy, Dame in the West Village, and Trans Pecos in Queens, so finding Yellow Rose this summer was like playing Tex-Mex whack-a-mole. But starting November 11th, Yellow Rose will have their very own brick and mortar spot on 3rd Avenue in the East Village. Expect a menu of a bunch of delicious tacos, spicy hominy soup with long fideo noodles, micheladas, and desserts you’ll want to take home and eat at midnight once your stomach is ready for round two.
