Your favorite very large, Mexican-Elvis-inspired Battery Park Stephen Starr restaurant is now doing a pretty
serious lunch-burrito operation.
But how will you know which when there are so many to choose from?
Well, this one’s called El Vez Burrito, whose purpose we pretty much already covered. It’s
burritos for you, and it’s open on the east side of El Vez.
Part 1: So you want to know what the hell this is about.
We won’t skirt the issue—this is basically Chipotle, in that you can make your burrito a bowl or have it
served over tortilla chips. But there are some crucial differences. Like here, they’ve got a burrito with
Korean BBQ beef and kimchi, and one that’s really a Frito pie.
Part 2: So you’ve decided to see about these “differences.”
You walk in during lunch with some work buddies, and have one of them grab and save stools at one of the
precious few tables. You get an aforementioned burrito, then see they’ve got horchata
soft-serve ice cream, and say, “I’ll try that, too.” Then you see the little fried churro stars you
can get on top of that, and once more you acquiesce.
