Lucky winner to receive $50 gift card to the popular Bodega Taco Bar in Darien!
Our mission: to find the next great foodie concept that we could reinterpret, package as our own and sell out to investment bankers. Well, we drank great cocktails and ate great food but something else was afoot. What we found was handcrafted everything - from the furniture to the bartenders whiskers to the ipod playlist to the smoked radish martini. These were not "concepts", they were just restaurant people doing their own thing. Now we were on to something, after all- breaking rules and blurring boundries came natural to us. And now the Taco part... We love farm to table as much as the next guy but after 4 or 5 Artisan Cocktails a single Bay Scallop on burning hay does not get you home. We needed further "inspiration" before suffering The Belt & I 95. One thing we discovered was that Brooklyn was not lacking in the Taqueria department. What started out as a late night snack turned into an inexpensive second meal that often triumphed the main event. Sometimes we would hit more than one in a night - hitting the brakes for the Calexico truck or doing a Taco Mix drive-by.
