Fast casual restaurants have taken over this city the past few years, and while I personally think most are best suited for a generic lunch, there's one spot that works amazing well for any meal, Mexicue. 

This laid back Mexican/BBQ spot began as a food truck back in 2010; roaming the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn serving up delicious tacos filled with pickled cabbage, cotija cheese and all kinds of smoked meat. Then in 2014 they set up shop at three locations across the city, expanding their menu from tacos and sliders to bowls, burritos and all sorts of fantastic cocktails.

Today the menu at Mexicue continues to evolve with items like Cornbread French Toast at brunch, bourbon fueled Mexican Mules during happy hour and their delicious Impossible Tacos, that taste exactly like the ground meat tacos Mom used to make but completely vegetarian. 

Of course the old favorites are still around as well, like those spicy brisket tacos topped with thick lime crema.  This is one fast casual…

Mother's Day Trifecta

Mother's Day is just around the corner so here's a trifecta of delightful, delicious ideas from NYC Tastes for celebrating that special person this Sunday.

Raspberry Croissants at Patisserie Chanson- These pink striped pastries from Chanson not only look incredible with those stunning pink hues, but they taste incredible too. Buttery and flaky on the outside with ribbons of sweet raspberry woven through each layer and a chunk of creamy chocolate in the center. This is the perfect way to kick off a Mom filled morning.

Ravines Winery Argetsinger Vineyard Dry Riesling  It's always nice to toast Mom on her special day and New York's Ravines Wine Cellar has a Riesling just perfect for the occasion.  This dry white bursts with notes of white peach and sage with a lively acidity and a crisp, clean finish.  It's the perfect addition to some bubbly at brunch or a lovely afternoon aperitif.
