A Preview of Tacombi's Mexi-Market, Cafe El Presidente

New, 3 comments

[Marguerite Preston]

Here's an early peek at Cafe El Presidente, the giant all-day cafe/tortilleria/market/taqueria from the Tacombi team, which opens later this month in the Flatiron District. Up front there's a fresh juice bar, a coffee bar (which turns into a regular bar), cafe seating, and a small selection of ingredients for sale. The back of the space has more seating, a tortilla press cranking out fresh tortillas, and Tacos Madison, a taqueria where former Peels chef Jason DeBriere will serve a range of classic tacos. Take a look.

According to Wolos, Cafe El Presidente is meant to be a neighborhood taqueria, with the feel of a real Mexican place. The concept is something he wants to expand to other neighborhoods, where the various components can be rearranged to fit the space. He's already working on a warehouse space in Bushwick, and has his eye on the Upper East and West Sides, Chelsea, and elsewhere.
