We consider Jeffrey Chartier, a partner in Soho Films, a brave man for opening Pinche taqueria a stone’s throw from La Esquina, but he is convinced the authenticity of his product will carry him (and it has, as he has since opened two more locations). “This is the first real authentic taqueria in New York City,” he boasts, and make no mistake, that includes his neighbor. “La Esquina is nowhere near authentic as far as I’m concerned.” So how is Pinche different?

At his spot, Chartier says, abuelitas make fresh tortillas, and the meat is butchered on premises (the meat is chopped with a machete on an avocado-tree trunk), broiled with red chiles, fresh herbs, and vinegar for hours, and then basted in a custom-built, hand-cranked brick rotisserie “al pastor” machine. The salsa, he says, is strictly organic, with habanero and tomato sauces prepared every day. Chartier, who worked at a taqueria in Mexico and now owns a few there, also serves tortas, grilled corn, and guacamole. Best of all, he’s offering delivery. No need to walk to La Esquina for takeout.
