Clinton Street is Getting a ‘Taqueria Diana,’ Here’s What to Expect

Taqueria Diana is opening a new restaurant on Clinton Street come springtime. The “California-inspired Mexican restaurant” combined the storefronts of two departed businesses on the block – C&C Prosperity Dumpling and La Socia Pawn.
The application materials just hit public record, so we now have more background on what to expect from this third outpost at 69 Clinton Street. The applicant, Matthew LaRue, hopes to license the sixteen-seat establishment with a full OP. It’s a small restaurant, to be fair. There’s a “luncheonette-style” counter that holds twelve stools, plus a pair of two-tops in the back.
Proposed hours are 11am to 1am Monday through Wednesday, and to 3am Thursday through Sunday.
This is a sort of homecoming for Taqueria Diana, which has roots on the Lower East Side. The fast-casual eatery was founded three years ago by former Meatball Shop manager Matthew LaRue. The first location opened at 121 Second Avenue (near St. Mark’s) in July 2013; they expanded to Hell’s Kitchen shortly thereafter.
LaRue will go before the SLA subcommittee of Community Board 3 later this month for approval.
