Carnitas is one of the greatest taco fillings of all time. The pork has been simmered and crisped up in its own aromatic fat, and it arrives at your door ready to be tucked into corn tortillas and garnished with lime, onion, cilantro, and three salsas!
Chef Alex Stupak achieved renown as one of the country’s hottest pastry chefs at Clio and Alinea in Chicago and at NYC’s wd-50. One day, though, he took a step back, asked himself what he loves to eat the most, and went confidently in the direction of his answer: Tacos! He opened Empellón to widespread critical acclaim in New York’s West Village in 2011, and it remains one of the city’s most popular restaurants.
