Mercadito Cantina to Become an Event Space
East Village taqueria standby Mercadito Cantina (172 Avenue B, 212-388-1750) will be shuttering its doors at the end of the month and will turn into an event space.
Per Mercadito's rep, the space will be utilized for "innovative cooking demonstrations by Chef Sandoval, beverage classes by Tippling Bros., private party packages and more."
