East Village resident Bobby Gonzales is behind the establishment, which he described as "Tavern-style but more of a bar with great food." The menu includes a variety of tacos and burritos, including vegan options.
Despite the "Night" element of the name, the space at 145 Avenue C opens at noon... and features a daily brunch service until 5 p.m. There are several projectors and big screens in the space, though he said they go up at night — leaving a lone TV behind the bar — "so people can engage with each other."
Hours: Noon to 4 a.m.
Gonzales, a native of New Mexico, operated La Flaca — billed as "New York's premier New Mexican bar and restaurant" — during a 10-year run (2010-2020) down on Grand at Suffolk.
Esperanto quietly closed in this space sometime in 2021 after 22 years in service.
We went on Sunday so my husband and his friends could watch basketball. I tried the chicken and the steak tacos. The steak tacos were maybe the best I’ve ever had, incredibly tender steak.
It was packed with fans and the tv’s were way too loud for me so I left with my toddler. I would offer some feedback: adjust the volume and soften the space for better acoustics.
Welcome to the neighborhood!
Looking forward to trying it, especially the tacos. Good luck!
