Proprietor Adam Frank is expanding his well-loved, three-year-old Brooklyn taqueria Cochinita to the Lower East Side. "Just signed lease for Cochinita Dos in Manhattan at 49 Canal near Orchard," writes Frank, the head preacher of the "taco gospel," on Facebook. The new spot, which will presumably also specialize in housemade tortillas and humanely raised meats, replaces long-shuttered Malaysian restaurant Overseas Taste. [Earlier, Related]
