During the Q&A, one girl said, “I’m from California and am looking for any Mexican food recommendations in New York.” It was totally off-topic for the panel subject (DIY Food Artisans) but God bless her for asking. I am always on the hunt for Mexican suggestions, especially from a pro.
Mr. Sietsema suggested a tiny takeout place called Dos Toros, which was created by two dudes from the Bay Area. It also happened to be walkable from the panel discussion! I decided to follow my stomach and skip the other two panels of the day.
My carnitas burrito, with cheese, rice, beans, guacamole and sour cream was just fine, nothing to complain about. Or write home about. Conclusion- people in this city are so starved for good Mexican food that even something passable seems exemplary. (I’ve had better burritos in Boston!)
