    Are you going to Empellon Taqueria in the West Village or Empellon Cocina in the East Village?

        i guess you've already had your meal. i'm just seeing this post now, or would have steered you towards the steak and away from the mushroom tacos. i'm crazy for the queso fundido, but they can make the tacos seem redundant. cocktails are tasty, but not strong. i generally opt for wine, instead. dessert is not to be missed. the tres leches cake has changed, but it's always great regardless of what form it takes. i liked it best when it was served with passion fruit.

        Empellon has become one of my favorites. can't wait to try Cocina.
