☞ EAT: Cascabel Taqueria

Okay, it's not in Harlem but at 80th Street and 2nd Avenue, the proximity is close enough for uptowners to make a short jaunt to Cascabel Taqueria. Since we occasionally venture below 96th Street, we thought this might be a great place to go to check out an emerging trend. New York Magazine reports on how taco theme restaurants are finally starting to take off in the city and interestingly enough, Mexican wrestling has come into the picture. A little kitsch, with a little modern, update the space with luchador murals in the background and Mexican ephemera throughout the store. Ingredients such as fresh tuna in the fish tacos and Berkshire pork in the carnitas variations make the short train trip worth the effort. Cascabel Taqueria is located at 1542 Second Avenue and the 4,5,6 line at 86th Street is the closest station. Photo by Hanna Whitaker. Read more in New York Magazine: LINK
