In Astoria: Tacuba Cantina Mexicana

Take taco night to Tacuba, Chef Julian Medina’s new spot in Queens. The eatery, which opened in September, boasts a varied Mexican menu. The authentic cultural decor includes a pair of Day of the Dead calaveras hanging from the ceiling. The little ones will love the Chef’s take on Chicken Quesadillas, which are served open-face. For yourself, get a bit more adventurous with an order of the Chapulin Tacos stuffed with Oaxacan grasshoppers. Servers have crayons and paper on hand in case the kids get antsy, which should buy you some time if you want to enjoy a frozen margarita or two.
