The hosts at Empellón Taqueria seek to discover, interpret and share a love for Mexican cuisine. The owners opened the restaurant with the intention of treating tacos with reverence while serving them in a lighthearted environment. The menu is designed with the idea that most ingredients worth eating can benefit by being placed atop a well-made tortilla. The chefs explore the ubiquitous, adored flavors of Mexican cooking, while also presenting the lesser-known and equally delectable preparations. Empellón's sensibility is informed by authenticity but not limited by it.
