Im not a taco person, but these converted me into a lover! The food was great, and we ordered one of every taco on the menu for fun (p.s., the hashbrown taco was to die for!), and the drinks were soo amazing!!
Easily one of the best hidden gems in NY. Amazing food and very creative drinks make for a fun, classy evening.
I came to Empellon today for lunch.  I had low expectations just from some of the reviews I read on here but I was pleasantly surprised.   Restaurant has nice decor, very bright. We sat upstairs.  Service was good.  We did the $38 prixe fixe menu and also shared crab nachos.  Crab nachos were delicious.  From the fixed menu I tried the cabbage salad which was great and big and then the fish tacos as my main which was also very tasty and a big portion.   I probably didn't need dessert since I was so full but I had the flan which was the perfect small portion.   All of the food was very interesting and the presentation was very good.  I enjoyed the meal but it wasn't cheap - luckily I was there for work on the company's dime.  $32 for nachos and $20 for two tacos with no sides is a bit pricy for my wallet!   Would recommend for a business meal though.
