Javelina, a new Gramercy eatery, will open its doors to previously Tex-Mex deprived New Yorkers on March 4.
Owner and Tex-pat Matt Post teamed up with former Hill Country and Rosa Mexicano chef Richard Caruso to bring an authentic and updated version of Tex-Mex from the Lone Star State to the Big Apple, utilizing fresh, homemade, and high-quality ingredients.
Start mentally preparing yourself for a feast of queso, tacos, and margaritas aplenty. The menu features the Bob Armstrong Dip, queso topped with guacamole and ground beef; Tacos with Pat LaFrieda beef brisket, fried avocado, or oxtail; and the Texas Forager Salad with grilled nopales, prickly pears, pecans, and arugula.
You’ll be speaking fluent Tex-Mex by the time you’re done devouring West Texas Stacked Pork Enchiladas and sunset-style fajitas.
