Tacocina

OPENED131 DAYS AGO

The Williamsburg waterfront welcomes a year-round taco stand – Tacocina is now open.

Brought to you by Danny Meyer – of Union Square Hospitality Group – Tacocina resides within Brooklyn’s new waterfront park: Domino Park (named after the surrounding Domino Sugar Refinery building). While Union Square Hospitality Group operates many restaurants, cafés and bars in New York – including Gramercy Tavern, Porchlight and Daily Provisions – Tacocina is their first outdoor stand.

The Spot:

Featuring an all-outdoor space, Tacocina looks a lot like a playground for adults. A massive metal sign covers the tall blue stand, which includes a platform for an elevated view, while playful neon signs and lights can be found below. The space features tropical plants, picnic tables and colorful chairs, channeling a laid-back vibe to go with the view of Manhattan’s skyline.

The Food:

General manager Barbara Garcia – who worked as a chef at Union Square Café and two Michelin-starred restaurant The Modern – oversees all operations, including the menu at Tacocina. Growing up in Mexico, Garcia combines traditional Mexican ingredients with local meat, seafood and produce. Think tacos with beef and salsa negra, pork and mango, and mushroom with elote sauce, alongside inventive snacks such as cheese chicharrones, raw vegetable picados with carrot crema and a Mexican shrimp cocktail.

In a Nutshell:

With views of the Williamsburg Bridge and Manhattan’s skyline, Tacocina is definitely the kind of place you could sit all day. Brooklyn is currently welcoming one hot destination after the other, including the new permanent food hall North 3rd Street Market and cocktail bar The Springs.
