Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Tacos de chapulines
$$$, Full Bar, Mexican, Happy Hour, Upper East Side
"I don't recommend these unless you love Oaxaca as much as I do and happen to miss it terribly. Chapulines are grasshoppers roasted with chile, lime, and salt. Julian Medina goes through the trouble of getting them from Oaxaca and I thank him for it. Have them with mezcal and a plate of oranges. They have more protein than the biggest steak you have ever eaten, and between that and the mezcal, you will never feel more energized."
