Mexican street food, justifiably popular at Manhattan and Red Hook’s food trucks, has now arrived in our river towns at The Taco Project, on Tarrytown’s Main Street. Owner, Nick Mesce, chose this concept to fit his small corner space (formerly Village Dog), offering “quick bite” service and casual dining, accompanied by Mexican beer, sangria or Spanish wine. And, of course, there’s the option of “taking something to go.”
Traditional Mexican food is back on Irvington’s Main Street, and what a culinary addition it is to our southern river towns! La Chinita Poblana opened in July, creating Pueblan Mexican dishes with home-made, flair, fresh ingredients and welcoming décor, thanks to co-owners/chefs Juan and Jesus Aguilar.
