Empellón al Pastor, the third restaurant from Alex (Empellón Cocina, Empellón Taqueria), is now open.
The doors opened at 12:30… or at least that's what the signs promised… that and football...
Here's a look at the menu… four of the five menu panels are devoted to alcohol …
There's also delivery via Caviar.
And Stupak said this about the space to WWD:
His choice of venue drives home the point: in the Eighties, it was a punk dive bar called Alcatraz. Stupak tapped several artist friends to re-create graffiti on the inside to look weathered.
“At the end of the day, I wanted it to feel like a quirky dive bar that someone happened to inject a taqueria into,” he says.
