WHY HERE: At the elegant flagship of chef Alex Stupak’s burgeoning Empellón empire, elevated cross-cultural Mexican food and a wide array of agave spirits reign supreme. Pair innovative tacos like octopus with celery and salsa verde with the Sketches of Spain (La Venenosa raicilla, gin, vermouth and Koch espadín mezcal).

WHY NOW: Empellón Al Pastor, the more laid-back East Village iteration, recently added a second location in the Pod 39 hotel in Murray Hill with an expanded menu.
