We hate to admit it, but Fall is almost here. And while the end of summer makes us want to cry into our empty margarita glasses, it also ushers in a slew of restaurant openings. So make your reservations and mourn the loss of your tan because thoughts of spiked apple cider and hot toddies are about the only things getting us over the end summer.
Cafe de la Esquina- The famed Nolita restaurant, La Esquina, heads to Williamsburg to transform the former Wythe Diner. Expected to be similar to its original location, the new space promises the same gourmet Mexican street food offered up in the Soho space as well as 100 tequilas. Yes, 100 tequilas. Divided among three spaces, the new spot houses an old school diner, a taqueria window and a dimly lit back room that seems like a good place to get lost in after a rousing tequila sampling. 225 Wythe Ave (btwn N 3rd Street and Metropolitan Ave) Brooklyn, NY 11211
Brace yourself for today's opening of Cafe de la Esquina, situated at Wythe Diner. This hot spot is no longer just a NoLita haven, so all you Williamsburg hipsters better head to check it out. Loyal Wythe Diner customers need not worry about the upheavel of their favorite joint-- the red barstools and wood paneling will remain intact...with a few added spices like some unique Mexican artwork. As for the menu? This too will remain unchanged, although there will be a few welcome additions, including make your own tacos, and guac and chips (a staple for any Mexican diner). This isn't just your typical diner though folks, an outdoor (beer!) garden is in the works so that you can enjoy your fajitas in the glimmering summer sun (while it lasts).
