I know it’s national sandwich day, but I want a taco. Where should I go?

Barry, I’m with you. I refuse to have my culinary whims and wishes decided by some pre-ordained calendar day. Who even came up with National Sandwich Day anyway? (I’m looking at you SubWay).

Any case – the city is loaded with places to pick up a great taco. One of my favorites is Hecho en Dumbo almost directly across from The Bowery hotel.

First of all – the restaurant comes from Danny Mena and Ethan Smith. They had originally been serving their Mexico City inspired fare at the Dumbo General Store but have since relocated to Manhattan. Any delicious Brooklyn establishment that decides to pack up (and/or expand) to the island gets points in my book.

And even more points for having some of the best damn (if somewhat pricey) tacos in town. The dinner menu offers 6 types and though I’ve tried all, the one that brings tears to my eyes and joy to my heart must be the Tacos de Costilla: Grilled steak Short rib tacos that will make you forget that its National Sandwich day. Heck it will probably make you forget what day of the week it is altogether.

The rest of the menu is equally impressive and DO NOT leave without having one of their margaritas.

Sandwich Day be damned.
