Flatiron Extra: Choza Taqueria Is Now Open
Normally we save our Flatiron stuff for the last day of the week, but we forgot to post this little bit of news on Friday…
As excited as I am for the fusiony Asian-Mex of Baorrito, sometimes you want a regular taco. Now we’ve got a place for that in the neighborhood. Choza Taqueria opened up this week, a welcome addition on a pretty dead strip of Madison, near 27th Street. I reported over the summer that Choza Taqueria was coming and watched with interest as Andrea checked out their branch in the Open Air Cafe downtown.
The place looks to still be a work in progress, so I’m going to hold off on a full scale post for a while. In the meantime, check out the menu after the jump.
The first thing that jumps out at me is that the prices are slightly higher with 3 tacos priced at $6.89 instead of $6 and the burritos at $7.58 over the $6.50 downtown. Overhead for a full-sized shop is clearly going to be pricier than an outdoor stand, so it’s understandable, I suppose. Let’s give them a little time to see if how they develop.
