Pics From Cascabel Taqueria on the Upper East Side
Today, Counter Culture wrestles its way into Cascabel Taqueria, a micro-eatery on the Upper East Side with an excellent beer list (including bottles from Sly Fox, Goose Island, Lagunitas, and other craft brewers), and food via chef Todd Mitgang that channels the great Chicago chef Rick Bayless's Mexican cooking. The only problem: The space is so cramped you'll eat with your neighbors' elbows sticking in your sides. Here are some of the things my crew and I enjoyed on three visits.
Cascabel Taqueria sports a wrestling motif; the bathrooms must be accessed through the door on the right, which leads to a tenement hallway. And the beer list is fantastic (click on image to read the suds menu).
