Time Out New York
Order the Mexican sponge cake— it arrives deconstructed, the moist cubes of vanilla cake surrounded by bitter orange marmalade, crumbled brown butter streusel and café con leche ice cream.
Try the lamb barbacoa taco, from Ryan Sutton's review: "The chef takes the belly and ribs, rubs them in adobo, buries them in avocado leaves, and cooks them low and slow."

I don't care if you hate Brussel Sprouts, the Brussel Sprouts taco is one of the most incredible dishes in NYC. Pay with Cover and walk out happy.
Rachel Karnofsky
Pastrami tacos ohhhhh yes.
Debora Olsson
Do not miss out on the delicious Pistachio Guacamole, it is to die for! The spicy cucumber margarita is a must as well!

My life was just changed by a $9 pastrami taco. Also beet juice mescal cocktail. And you might as well try pistachio guac like everyone says.

There is a dish with melted cheese and lobster. This should really go without saying, but ORDER THAT.
Jeana Costa
Amazing food. Recommend getting many plates and sharing (size is right for that). Try: Guac, Roasted Carrots, Mango + Crab, Lobster Queso, Kale Taco, Scallop Taco. All so tasty!

The menus at Empellón Cocina change often, in the dining room and at the bar.

You should get the Sauvignon Blanc Hager from Austria, great wine. Perfect with Stupak's food.
Dina Fierro

The Wall Street Journal
Chilaquiles, a traditional Mexican hangover cure that is typically made from leftovers, eggs and salsa-soaked fried corn-tortilla strips, is dressed up here with meaty maitake mushrooms.
Jon Steinback
everything is delicious. no reservation? just sit at the bar.
Inspired Mexican plates and extensive agave spirits collection
Paws up for the best guacamole in NYC. For realz.
A curvaceous, white brick interio sets the mood for the seriously shareable Mariscos (like mezcal-cured ocean trout w/ roe & cream cheese) at EC.
Get the lobster queso dish to split. Best. Thing. Ever.
