‘El Luchador’ Opening Another Wrestling-Themed Taco Stand on Ludlow Street

Word on the street is that Hell Square will soon welcome a new Mexican snack joint to its ranks, taking the reins from a failed creperie.
A year into operations down by the South Street Seaport, the popular taco stand El Luchador is reportedly opening a new location on the Lower East Side. Sources disclose that the restaurant, named quite literally for Mexican wrestlers, will open a second outpost at 132 Ludlow Street. The window paper is already up and work underway.
Details are scant at the moment, but the shoebox-sized real estate is visibly smaller than its footprint further downtown in their horse stable-motor home combo. If proven true, we can likely expect the same menu and stylings of the older sibling. That means plenty of luchador masks to entertain while chomping tacos. It also spells showdown with the two-year-old Taquitoria just a few doors to the north.
In addition, the South Street location carries a beer-wine license. This being a saturated area, neighbors might take issue about any potential pitch in that direction.
132 Ludlow Street previously housed Pomme Creperie, which shuttered last month after two years in business.
