ASTORIA — What's the maximum withdrawal amount?

A new bar and restaurant serving up cuisine inspired by Tulum, Mexico, will let diners order from a "Taco ATM" when it opens later this month.

Las Catrinas, at 32-02 Broadway, features a menu and decor straight from the popular beach-side vacation town, with the owners looking to replicate its "tranquil and earthy relaxed vibe," a statement from the restaurant said.

"We'd like to call ourselves an 'eatery staycation,'" the statement continued. "A place where you can feel like you're away from all the hustle and bustle."

The "Taco ATM" — accessible by a sidewalk window — will offer takeout for people seeking late-night grub, cold-brew coffee and, eventually, breakfast dishes, a spokeswoman said.

The restaurant will also serve up items like cactus salad and guacamole, with everything made in-house, including chips and tortillas.

Las Catrinas will include a stocked tequila bar mixing up margaritas and other cocktails, as well as outdoor sidewalk seating surrounded by succulent and herb plants.

The restaurant is tentatively expected to open on April 28, according to the owners.

Its space, at Broadway and 32nd Street, was most recently a PS Italian Bistro.
