Taco Kit for 4-6 - Choose Your Own
A delicious solution to a taco dilemma! Take your pick from three of Empellón’s most beloved taco fillings— Adobo Shrimp, Veggie Chorizo, or Carnitas — along with corn tortillas and plenty of accompanying salsas and garnishes!
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.
