Teqa Tequileria & Taqueria

Murray Hill, NY – Jackson Heights native Steven Cruz joins Teqa as its newest Executive Chef. Formerly of Rayuela, Cavo, and The Orchard House, Chef Cruz brings with him a melding of old school technique (honed from his Argentenia grandmother) with a uniquely modern twist. Situated in the heart of Murray Hill’s vibrant bar scene, Teqa’s new dinner menu (beginning December) is matched only by its creative (and outrageously delicious) cocktail list.
