Taco Bell Cantina plans to open a multi-level space in Midtown

Written by

Taco Bell keeps ringing the bell with additional Taco Bell Cantinas set to take over New York City.

The latest opening, reported earlier this week by the Commercial Observer, is located at 976 Sixth Avenue between West 35th and 36th Streets in Midtown and will be the first multi-level Taco Bell Cantina in the city. It will span two floors, where diners can feast on their chalupas and nacho fries with frozen margaritas and local beers.

A trio of Taco Bell Cantinas descended on the Big Apple in 2018 and since then, it’s been reported that the fast food chain has plans of opening at least 50 more locations by 2022 throughout the five boroughs. Unlike the drive-through models you’d find in suburbia, the Cantinas boast features like self-service kiosks, mobile apps for placing orders and delivery through Seamless.

More recently, Taco Bell moved forward with plans to open in the heart of Times Square in the Paramount Building with nearly 4,000-square-feet of space. That news comes out just when another notable chain, Krispy Kreme, plans to open its 24/7 Times Square flagship later this spring as well. Tacos and doughnuts, anyone?
