Sumary of At New York’s Amigo By Nai, Tacos Rise Way Above Street Food:
- Amigo by Nai Each night Amigo by Nai offers 18 varieties of tacos, some as appetizers, but nothing on the menu costs more than $18, and that’s for a terrific, impeccably chopped 45-day aged Prime ribeye tartare, Nixtamal tortilla, Pedro Jiménez Sherry, cilantro and lemon.
- On hand to direct everything with his unceasingly affable disposition is general manager Raul Oléaga, formerly Director of Operations at ViCool by Michelin-starred Madrileño chef Sergi Arola.
- There’s a good wine list at Amigo Nai but everyone begins with one of Beverage Director Niko Hagerty’s unique cocktail creations, like his “What Happened to 8th Street” made with wasabi-infused Dewars White Label Scotch, sea salt, sesame seaweed, green chartreuse, matcha, coconut, and Aztec chocolate, along with a first-rate margarita.
- Amigo by Nai’s beef tartare is impeccably diced and well seasoned.
