A Look Around the One Day-Old Empellon Cocina


Monday, we offered up the menu of Empellon Cocina, Alex Stupak's new East Village sister restaurant to his West Village taqueria, yesterday they threw open the doors, and this morning, it's time for a look around. What was once vegetarian standby Counter is now a breezy but sleek new space with Mexican motifs, chalkboards of inspiration, and a kitchen that is partially visible to the dining room through a window written over in ingredients and menu items.

According to the online chatter, opening night went well, but make sure to send in early reports in the coming weeks this way, especially as chef Stupak tries his hand at a new tasting menu, currently in the works.
