Taqueria 86 has opened at 210 West 94th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue (which was previously occupied by Whispers). It’s open daily from 11am-9pm.
The new taco spot is currently waiting on its liquor license, but it’s gotten some pretty positive reviews for its food so far, with reviewers noting authenticity and freshness.
Taqueria 86’s menu includes nine taco options made with gluten-free handmade tortillas and with proteins including pork shoulder, chorizo and shrimp; appetizers including Flautas Doradas (fried, stuffed corn tortillas) and Elote Asado (grilled corn with chipotle mayonnaise, queso fresco, Tajin & lime); quesadillas, burritos and tortas; and desserts including a tres leches horchata and churros. The current drink list includes an assortment of Mexican sodas as well.
