Taquitoria Begins Service at 168 Ludlow Street

As expected, Taquitoria debuted at 168 Ludlow Street over the weekend, aptly launching to serve the drunken late night hordes of Hell Square. Official opening was yesterday, though. The new restaurant had been in the works since July, with only a teaser printout as proper evidence.

Taquitoria is a fast-foodish establishment specializing in “San Diego-style” taquitos, which are small rolled tacos. It was forged by the hands of three vets from Marc Forgione.

Here’s a taste of what to expect from Thrillist:

The fillings are approximately a billion levels above your garden-variety rolled snack. The four choices include Bell & Evans chicken that’s brined for 2hrs in secret herbs and spices, then braised in Forgione’s Batch 22 “Bloody mix” for a nice hint of horseradish and mustard seed.

At the moment, the dining room does not carry any sort of SLA license. But, seriously, how much longer before they approach Community Board 3 for at least wine and beer? That’ll likely happen if and when sales begin to taper off.

Of course, 168 Ludlow was formerly home to the ill-fated La Montanara by Forcella. The fried pizza outpost barely lasted six months at this location before the dreaded Misrahi Realty signs appeared onsite.
