New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
The hosts at Empellón Taqueria seek to discover, interpret and share a love for Mexican cuisine. The owners opened the restaurant with the intention of treating tacos with reverence while serving them in a lighthearted environment. The menu is designed with the idea that most ingredients worth eating can benefit by being placed atop a well-made tortilla. The chefs explore the ubiquitous, adored flavors of Mexican cooking, while also presenting the lesser-known and equally delectable preparations. Empellón's sensibility is informed by authenticity but not limited by it.
