Javelina

OPENED209 DAYS AGO

Tex-Mex restaurant Javelina has opened a second location in the UES.

The new site will boast a larger bar area and late-night happy hour, and to celebrate the opening, they are offering free breakfast tacos to the first 100 people at the restaurant from 8.30am, every day until January 26.

The Spot:

The new space seats 70, with 24 in the large bar area, and has been designed along the same scheme as the original, inspired by the city of Marfa, TX. It’s minimalistic, with industrial handmade concrete tiling, raw white oak walls and ceilings, and concrete and metal pillars, brightened up by custom woodwork and art by Texan artists.

The Food:

You’ll find Tex-Mex classics like enchiladas, tamales and huevos rancheros, tacos in flavors including chicken, brisket, shrimp and the signature Pork Puffy taco (marinated pork shoulder, cotija cheese, cilantro), and a range of queso: traditional, white, ‘Bob Armstrong’ (added guac & ground beef), and ‘Mag Mud’ (added guac & black beans).

The new location will also have a monthly rotating queso, and it’s adding the Habanero Queso (only on Fridays at the Gramercy location) to the main menu. Is the word ‘queso’ looking weird to anyone else yet?

Those breakfast tacos come in the classic BEC and potato, egg & cheese – they’ll join the main menu next month, and a full brunch menu will appear in the spring.

The Drinks:

Obviously, there are margaritas. The exciting flavor list includes Strawberry, Prickly Pear, Habanero &  White Peach, and (slightly less appetising) Avocado & Cilantro. There’s a range of other cocktails, too.

The Damage:

Prices vary here – a main meal will set you back between $10 and $20, quesos $10–$14 and those margaritas are $11–14.

In a Nutshell:

It’s hard to get Tex-Mex very wrong, and Javelina have already proved their worth with the popularity of their first location. Owner Matt Post is a Dallas native and that shows in the designs of both his restaurants and his menus. Throw in the free breakfast tacos to sweeten the deal and you might even get us to try an avocado margarita.
