NEW YORK CITY — A Latin restaurant from the owner of an established pizza joint and a to-go store that sells complete ingredient kits for a home-cooked meal are new to the city's food scene.
Here are four new eateries New Yorkers can try this weekend:
A waffle-and-taco hybrid dubbed a "wafco" is the standout menu item at Nosh Borough, which opened recently at 25-17 Astoria Blvd. Nosh Borough serves up comfort food with southern and Asian-inspired twists.
A new below-ground food stop underneath 14th Street and Fourth Avenue in Union Square station is selling to-go dinner kits to busy commuters. A Fresh Routes kit contains fresh ingredients, seasonings and recipes so a family can prepare it at home within 30 minutes.
El Barrio Burritos at 796A Franklin Ave. in Crown Heights, Brooklyn
A new California-style Mexican restaurant is open for business with a focus on recipes that have come out of the San Francisco area. El Barrio Burritos is serving up an oversized Bay Area burrito and a San Jose taco with soft shells and plenty of fresh toppings.
The owner of Posto Pizza on Second Avenue, Antonio Gomez, opened a Latin restaurant this week a few doors down. Mezcla is serving both Latin and Spanish food with specialties being rotisserie chicken, rabbit paella and tapas.
