Sembrado’s Tacos al Pastor, the new Mexican restaurant from Danny Mena, the chef and co-founder of Hecho en Dumbo, is apparently opening on Thursday. (This info comes via a news release published in The Epoch Times.)
Sembrado’s, opening July 25, will be one of the first in New York to use the classical Mexican technique of slowly cooking marinated pork on a vertical rotisserie — called the trompo.
Grilled meat tacos, made with hand pressed corn tortillas, will be a staple on the menu.
The pastry chef is Fany Gerson, who used to work for Eleven Madison and Rosa Mexicano.
Sembrado offers a “Make-Your-Own Mexican Sundae” dessert menu.
Sundae options will include rotating ice cream flavors such as Mexican Vanilla, Strawberries and Sour Cream, and Horchata.
Each is coated with a choice of sweet tomatillo sauce, Mexican hot fudge, and goat’s milk caramel.
The Sembrado website is live... and includes the menus...
