2. Cascabel Taqueria
In 2009, DAVID CHIONG and ELIZABETH GAUDREAU opened a tiny, funky, downtown casual taqueria on the Upper East Side with a surprisingly sophisticated take on comida Mexicana. Cascabel Taquería is what happens when a restaurateur and an interior designer get together to bring Mexican street food to New York City to serve delicious tacos and more. The top quality and local ingredients, innovative cocktails, and energized atmosphere made them out grow their tiny restaurant.

2. Friducha Mexican
The Frida-Kahlo-themed Mexican restaurant overtook the old La Taverna space at 946 Manhattan Ave (at the corner of Java St). A quick look at their menu reveals common Mexican dishes of tacos, burritos, fajitas, nachos, and enchiladas. The Brooklyn-based El Salvadorean owners are inspired by Kahlo leading to using Diego Rivera’s nickname for her.

Cobble Hill (Novo217)
1. Fatty Daddy Taco
Fatty Daddy clearly means business. The cooking is well-executed street food that went indoors but still caters to those on the go. (Look no further than the aluminum takeout containers stacked right up to the dropped ceiling.) As for the food, the soft-shell tacos are terrific (especially the grilled fish), the quesadillas are substantial meals and not appetizers, and the burritos are as heavy as adobe bricks.
