Everywhere You Need to Eat in NYC Right Now

The gist: This fast-casual eatery on St. Marks opened last May and specializes in a local Southern-California style burrito with a signature element: they’re stuffed with French fries (a San Diego specialty). Electric Burrito was born out of the pandemic when Alex Thaboua and Will Wyatt of nearby cocktail spot, Mister Paradise, originally started selling the items from their bar during the pandemic. With a limited number of counter stools and seats on the sidewalk at this brick and mortar now dedicated to the popular fare, the spot has also become a local destination for homesick San Diegans.
The food: Go for a California Burrito (fries, cheese, pico de gallo) or a Conga Burrito (beans, rice, crema) with carne asada, carnitas, or pollo asado as the base. A selection of breakfast burritos include egg n’ cheese, veggie, or chorizo; and specialty burritos include shrimp, portobello, and bean n’ cheese. Additional items include tacos, nachos, and carne asada fries. For beverages, inquire about a must-try housemade salsa soda that has limited availability.
