Temerario – Mexican “Street Food” in Chelsea

Photo of Temerario - New York, NY, United States. Can't miss it!

Temerario opened in February, but surprisingly, I was not aware of it until I received a Blackboard Eats offer yesterday. The fourth venture of the team behind Black Ant, Ofrenda, and Gardenia, it immediately looked promising to me, and we decided to try it last night. Some reports I read criticized food, service or both, but we loved the dishes we had, and the service was perfect.

Knowing that the portions at their other restaurants tend to be generous, we ordered two appetizers and one main course, and it was indeed plenty of food. We shared the fish tacos to start, and accompanied it with a smoky jalapeno Margarita (delicious!) and a “Bad Habit” (rum, cherries, etc., also very good).  For a main course, we shared the duck tacos and the burger. The burger was full of flavor, perfectly medium rare, and came with delicious fries, a pickle and a pickled jalapeno. We accompanied this course with a Negra Modelo.  This is a nice addition to the neighborhood and we will be back soon to try out more dishes.
