NYC chef bringing taco joint to Greenwich Avenue

October 31, 2018 GMT

A onetime women’s clothing store on Greenwich Avenue is being converted into a taco joint called La Taqueria, with an opening date yet to be specified under head chef Dennis Lake.

The storefront at 10 Greenwich Ave. was previously home to 2nd Time Around, an apparel consignment chain that shut down abruptly in June 2017.

Lake has previously served as head chef for Rosa Mexicano in New York City, as well as Glaze Teriyaki Grill with locations in the city.

Greenwich Avenue is home to a Chipotle restaurant, with other nearby Mexican restaurants including Boxcar Cantina on Old Field Point Road and Bartaco in neighboring Port Chester, N.Y.
