Akhtar Nawab Is Officially In at La Esquina


A little over a week ago, reps were still denying that Akhtar Nawab was in at La Esquina, but Nawab was a little more forthcoming on the most recent episode of the “Mr. Cutlets Show.” Not only is he the taqueria’s new chef, but he says he has “some other projects on the table too.” In the meantime, expect sweetbread tacos and lobster arepas to join the current menu staples. Nawab doesn’t say much about his brief stint at Zengo, though he does mention that Richard Sandoval has “eleven more restaurants on the book for this year alone.”
