114 Kenmare St (at Lafayette St)
New York, NY 10012
The outstanding tacos -- served individually -- are the real deal at this perpetually popular outpost on Kenmare. Below the taqueria is a not-so-secret secret subterranean dining room, where you can snag margaritas, queso fundido, chile relleno, and carne asada with chimichurri in a decidedly sexier environment. Search for the door with the "Employees Only" sign behind the bouncer inside.
