Details about the La Esquina outpost opening in Williamsburg are beginning to emerge, with Urban Daddy getting the latest scoop. Urban Daddy says:
Just like the corner deli locale of the original, outpost numero dos is divided up into three distinct sections. There’s the takeout window/taqueria (always wise to bookend a bar night with veal tongue tacos). The intimate back room (think chile de árbol braised brisket by candlelight). And a vintage diner area that’s now technically a saloon with 100-plus sipping tequilas.
And by the end of August, the taqueria is getting an all-important outdoor cerveza yard—complete with tree canopies and strings of festive lights—which you’ll make your spot for alcoholic shaved ice and grilled corn rolled in lime mayo, chili and cotija cheese.
We miss Relish, but are excited for the prospect of additional excellent Mexican food in the ‘burg.
