For the final piece in the hype-storm puzzle that is Gotham West Market, Matt Wagman and David Albiero roll out a taco-and-tamale shop and ceviche bar inside the critics-darling food hall. Taking over Caroline Fidanza's shuttered Little Chef stall, the restaurateurs teamed up with Akhtar Nawab—who's previously manned the burners at Craft and La Esquina—to oversee a build-your-own menu of burritos, bowls and tostadas. Topping options include chipotle-marinated carne asada, zucchini with avocado salsa and citrus-braised carnitas. Along with made-to-order juices (orange, kale), the stall—inspired by Mexico's knick-knack-packed mercados and decorated with clay pots and glass vessels—also serves Mexican Coke, Jarritos and margaritas on tap.

When Choza Taqueria introduced their chorizo burrito bowl, it was as if my dreams had come to fruition. I always intend to try something new each time I visit, but chorizo is too perfect a lunch option to ever pass up. The Gotham Market Lines can be pretty punishing during the lunch rush, but the folks at Choza keep things moving rather quickly. I always appreciate a selection of Jarritos and Mexican coke. Choza’s quick service and super fresh ingredients, and Gotham Market’s overall lively atmosphere has made this a fun destination with co-workers when we’re looking to treat ourselves to lunch beyond leftovers.
