New York diners retrofitting as Latin American restaurants

Has anyone noticed the trend of Manhattan lunch counters adding Latin American fare and/or becoming Latin American restaurants? I've watched Burger One on Lexington between 79th and 80th morph from a burger shop with tacos on the side to a taqueria with burgers available upon request. They used to have a little cardboard sign out front listing their taco and burrito fillings. Now they have an illuminated sign out front reading "burgers/burritos/tacos," and half the menu is Mexican food. It's been a great success and a wonderful addition to the neighborhood. Here's to hoping the trend continues.
