LES Crepes & Taqueria Expands Into Former xCubicle Space on Essex Street
When xCubicle departed the southwest corner of Essex and Hester Streets last month, there had been some speculation as to what would take its place. High on the list was the expansion of the four-year-old taco stand next door.
LES Crepes & Taqueria just pushed into the adjacent space over the weekend, adding a fresh coat of yellow paint and more legroom. Indeed, it nearly triples their overall footprint in the process.
The annexed floor area at 25 Essex Street makes sense. Business at the tiny taqueria is often brisk. There is always a queue of customers ordering and waiting for food on the sidewalk. Having additional interior space will certainly alleviate congestion (and freezing in the wintertime).
Here’s a look inside the new shop…
LES Crepes first opened on the block in June 2013. Ownership took the 80 square-foot space that was xCubicle’s first headquarters.
