Dreaming of Mexico

Pastry Chef Lauren Resler

Empellón Cocina, NYC

Mixologist Matthew Resler

Empellón Taqueria, NYC

When Alex Stupak and his team opened Empellón Taqueria in NYC’s West Village, it was such an instant hit that they had to launch the more complex Empellón Cocina on the East Side. Now both restaurants are lauded among the city’s discerning diners for their vibrant, seductive interpretations of authentic Mexican flavors.
