Last night Twitter informed us of Empellon Cocina's new brunch menu starting this weekend. Empellon Cocina, located in the East Village, opened in February and is the second authentic Mexican eatery from Alex Stupack. Empellon Cocina will offer a full brunch menu along with morning cocktails, and aguas-frecscas for those who might have stumbled in straight from the club. The menu will also include delicious breakfast and midday entrees such as buttermilk-masa pancakes with smoked maple syrup and mole poblano butter and slow-poached eggs with toasted challah bread and green chorizo gravy. The brunch menu, just as their dinner menu, will not offer any tacos whatsoever. Of course this is alarming to some diners but with things like melted Tetilla cheese with lobster, tomato frito, and kol who needs a breakfast taco?
This weekend will be packed; you're better off making a reservation at 212.367.0999
