Oaxaca Taqueria Now Open at 16 Extra Place

Posted on: December 2nd, 2010 at 6:38 am by

The sterile street mall off the Bowery that never was just gained a new fast food eating establishment.  Oaxaca Taqueria opened a new franchise at 16 Extra Place yesterday afternoon.  Down at the dead end.  We walked by to pick up a menu and the place was empty.  Save for a sandwich board outside the restaurant and a Twitter handle, you wouldn’t know it existed.

In any event, the interior very much resembles the bare-bones nature of Chipotle. And the menu channels that aesthetic as well.  Nothing too fancy here, just some basic, run-of-the-mill Mexican food at modest price points.  Lunch specials run Monday through Friday, 11 am – 3 pm, and cost under $7.

Oaxaca Taqueria is jumping the river from Brooklyn where it currently maintains three separate locations.  16 Extra Place is its first proper Manhattan offering.  Guess this gives the private party people at the exclusive subterranean club, Extra Place, someplace to quell their munchies.
