Taco Electrico

OPENED51 DAYS AGO

A new taqueria and bar, Taco Electrico, lands in Union Square.

Taco Electrico is a new taqueria and bar by Gerber Group (of Mr. Purple, The Campbell), where the design is just as fun and colorful as the menu. Now that Union Square has welcomed Taco Electrico and the newly opened Italian spot Bocce USQ, this area is finally giving us some solid options for dinner.

The Spot:

It’s colorful, it’s millennial-ready, and the neon signs are definitely going to be all over your Instagram. Designed in collaboration with Fun People, Taco Electrico features pops of orange, blue and pink throughout the space, while a funky geometric DJ booth promises to bring you all the tunes. There’s plenty of seating too, including an alcove with hanging swings (framed by a LED design, of course), high-top tables and a fiery orange area with banquettes.

The Food:

Chef Fernando Navas offers a menu with Mexican small plates and tacos, using vegetables from Union Square’s Greenmarket. Highlights include sweet corn fritters with tajin, cotija cheese, chipotle mayo and lime; pork belly tacos with pickled red onion; and cauliflower tacos with turmeric tahini. You’ll also find a variety of quesadillas, featuring squash blossom, chicken and kale, or pickled jalapeños and chorizo.

The Drinks:

Highlighting Mexican spirits and flavors, Taco Electrico serves signature cocktails such as “Horchata or Nada” (Casamigos Reposado infused with banana and cinnamon), “Hibiscus Paloma” (Casamigos Blanco, grapefruit, fresh lime and hibiscus ice) and Margaritas done in three different ways.

The Damage:

Dishes vary between $9 and $15; cocktails are around $15.

In a Nutshell:

With a menu that focuses on shareable dishes and cocktails (including large-format ones), Taco Electrico seems ideal for a fun evening with friends. Oh, and don’t miss out on the street-style churros, served with burned sweet milk and chocolate.
