Los Tacos No. 1, widely considered to serve some of the city’s best tacos, has expanded again. The latest outpost of the chain opens on Friday, December 8, at 201 W. 33rd Street, between Seventh and Eighth avenues, near Madison Square Garden and Penn Station. It’s the fifth location of Los Tacos No. 1 in New York, joining locations in Times Square, Tribeca, Noho, and more.

Another chance for a Prospect Lefferts Gardens spot

It seems third (fourth?) times the charm for a neighborhood restaurant in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. In 2019, Mo’s Original opened at 453 Rogers Avenue, at Lincoln Road, serving Caribbean-inflected ramen. By 2020, the team expanded next door with a bar called Anything. Slowly, the menu at Mo’s began to change, adding bagels and other items. In 2022, it changed its name to Names, and focused on pizza, due to a cease and desist from Moe’s Original BBQ, a Southern restaurant chain. Now, the business is changing things up again: Names is no more, and Anything, its sibling bar, will expand to take over both storefronts. Select bites will still be available, but the dual spaces are counter-service only, as of the change that went into effect last week.

A new dessert shop coming to Soho

French pastry chef Grégory Doyen is opening Mod, a dessert spot at 199 Prince Street, at MacDougal Street, in Soho. The name stands for “multilayered original dessert,” which a publicist describes as “something of a brownie/cookie hybrid.” Mod is set to debut this month.

Talea is opening shortly at Bryant Park

Talea, the women-owned brewery that first opened in Williamsburg in 2021 is adding another location soon. Located at 22 W. 40th Street, near Fifth Avenue, the new 1,650-square-foot taproom has 74 seats. It opens on December 19 and will be the company’s fourth outpost, including locations in Cobble Hill and the West Village.
