“Like all cuisines, the food of Mexico is rich and worthy of attention outside of what everyone thinks it is,” Velazquez said.
As to what the twist on tacos is, we’re uncertain because he is leaving that up to his chefs, sous chefs, and kitchen staff. He noted it could be “experimenting with different types of tortillas” or it could be different meats. Padre up the street at Broadway serves fried chicken tacos while Pier 76 down the street at Pine serves smoked fish tacos (that are some of the most spectacular in the world—no joke)—but it is unlikely that Velazquez will go down either of those roads.
