New Food on Broadway btwn 137 and 138

Tres Pasos Mexican Kitchen and Vinegar Hill Bread Market and Gourmet just opened this week on Broadway between 137/138. The food is amazing. You can get burritos, soft tacos and mexican beverages at Tres Pasos and prepared foods, baked goods and pizza at Vinegar Hill. Food was delicious

  1. Great to hear that they opened -- been watching the progress and wondering how it would be. It's so...gentrified looking, but hopefully still serves the general nabe.

    Now I just want El Rey del Cubano to re-open on 138th street - that was a crazy good sandwich.

      There's a deli counter in a place at the corner of 138 and B'way. They have a sign in the window that says El Rey del.....something. This a temporary location for these guys, or a different sandwich?

        Crazy good sandwich? Try the Vietnamese sandwich shop near Mott Street, above Little Italy. The only thing crazy about El Rey was the smell....

          1. Actually the big problem with Vinegar Hill may just be that they are employing locally and not training their staff correctly.

            I live down the block and was very happy to see Vinegar Hill open however the staff are really in need of some serious training.

            The other night when I went in the male employees were having a very loud and crude conversation that would have scared off anyone interested in a Veggie Grill specialty sandwich.

            Then I went home and ordered one of their Meatlovers brick oven pizzas only to have it delivered upside down, what a mess!!!

            Vinegar Hill has great eats but it just isn't going to work if you have the wrong technique or employees for that matter...

              Right on!!! Why do I want to hear about the pizza guys problems, and the cashiers date last night? AND they have a tip jar!! Tips for doing their job? (See Steve Buscemi in "Reservior Dogs" for details...)
