If you’re a fan of Cosme or Empellón Cocina, you’ll want to check out Guadalupe Inn, which the team behind Williamsburg Mexican restaurants Mesa Coyoacan and Zona Rosa just opened in Bushwick. Mexico City–born chef-owner Ivan Garcia’s menu is quite ambitious: To start, there’s beer-battered squash blossom, corn-masa tamales with bone marrow, and fish tacos cooked in the style of Michoacán.
But things only get more interesting! Trompito al pastor is a showstopper, and there are also veal meatballs, shrimp marinated in chile de arbol, and, for dessert, fresh corn flan. (Though an order of churros filled with goat-milk caramel should be on every table, obviously.) To sip: a wide variety of tequilas and mezcals. Take a look to see why it’s finally time to retire the argument that New York has no good Mexican food:
