Even if you’re not local, it will get to you: the car honks, the clank of trains passing overhead on elevated lines, or the roar of traffic below the pedestrian walkway on the Brooklyn Bridge. Even those walking conference calls, with dressed-up walkers barking into invisible hands-free mics around Wall Street.

Tacos have become as ubiquitous to American cuisine as hot dogs and popcorn. The popularity of these handheld delights means there is no shortage of places to grab a taco in New York City, but only a few restaurants offer up something that is truly special.
