Taqueria: Closed for Renovation

Written by

Everybody’s favorite little piece of Mexico on Amsterdam is currently closed for renovation, and there is no word on when it will be back up. And that “everyone” includes two 20-something males overheard saying “We’ve been foiled again!” as they looked sadly upon the closed restaurant.

Full sign after the jump.

    any kind of Mexican food


  3. Hey!  

    You're forgetting about chipotel!

  4. Tip  

    A restaurant that is "closed for renovation" usually means it failed inspection.
    Ooh, and look!
    They failed two inspections within a month of each other.
