LES Crepes & Taqueria Wraps Around Hester Street with New Annex
LES Crepes & Taqueria just unveiled its newly improved eat space on Essex Street.
Customers are now forced to enter the premises at the corner. No more ordering and waiting for food on the sidewalk. One of the workers explained his pleasure with putting the claustrophobia in the past.
By breaking down the wall to 25 Essex Street, the taqueria not only tripled its footprint but expanded its menu. (Check the chalkboard.) This added square-footage will likely help the cubbyhole eatery keep up with both demand and area competition. Meal-seekers can now dine at one of the dozen or so stools lined up along the window.
The corner real estate was made available thanks to the departure of gamer repair shop, xCubicle, which fled to the Financial District last month after nearly a decade on the block.
