Alex Stupak

Empellón Cocina, Empellón Taqueria, and Empellón Al Pastor, 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.
