MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Buttoned-up midtown gets a much-needed shot in the arm compliments of Chef Alex Stupak’s lively flagship from his popular Empellón family. This colorful and multi-level space offers a first floor outfitted with a generous bar area and prime view of the bustling open kitchen. On the mezzanine level, find a more intimate dining space. The menu bears the chef's signature creative flair, offering a range of small bites, tacos and shareable large plates. Sample the clever spins on salsa, like a wickedly good smoky cashew version that arrives along with the sampler starter; or the irresistible lamb sweetbread tacos with a flutter of white onion and bright cilantro. Stupak is also a serious pastry chef and his talent shows in desserts, like the "avocado."
