Empellón Taqueria

Mexican in West Village, Chelsea & Meatpacking District

At the West Village location of the popular mini-chain tacos are king. Chef Alex Stupak dropped the ‘Tex’ from Tex-Mex, creating imaginative south-of-the-border fare that is wholly elegant and beautifully presented. The white-brick walls further accentuate the mural of luscious red petals behind the bar. Make sure to get some guacamole to start – it's some of the best in town.
