Midtown East: The twitterverse alerts us and a call to the restaurant confirms: Pinche Taqueria is opening a third location in the Mantra space (see vital update below!) at 986 Second Ave (at 52nd) tonight at 5 o'clock. It will have the usual Pinche setup with the same Pinche menu of tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and tortas, but upstairs? Upstairs will be an all-out club with DJs and a full bar.
"I don't know if you've ever been to Señor Frogs in Cancun," owner Jeff Chartier tells us, "But it will be something like that." This week they'll be open after 5 p.m. today through Saturday. Next week they'll start opening during lunch and doing deliveries throughout Midtown East.
UPDATE: They are in a partnership with Mantra, not taking over their space.
