Empellón Taqueria, New York City
If you need some hair of the dog after a night of Puebla pride, look no further than Chef Alex Stupak's Empellón Taqueria, serving up brunch on May 4th and May 5th. All three seatings of this two-course meal include unlimited margaritas, beer and wine and start at $45 per person. Fair warning: space is limited and the margaritas are heavenly so make reservations ASAP!
Haven Lounge, Miami
Find refuge from the monotony of the average Monday at Haven. Or if you simply can't wait until then, head over on May 2nd for their Dos de Mayo party from 7pm until 10pm for $5 Dos Equis and small plates from around the world.
Counting down to Cinco de Mayo weekend? So are the folks at Órale, a Mexican restaurant that combines Mexican traditions and flavors with an modern urban attitude. And yes, we say weekend because they plan on celebrating from the 2nd 'til the 5th. From an all-night DJ dance party to a leisurely brunch, they've covered all their bases. Both Orale outposts (in NY and NJ) will announce cocktail specials and menu additions as the weekend unfurls so keep an eye out!
Wynwood Kitchen and Bar, Miami
Keeping their tradition of innovative Latin-influenced cuisine, the Wynwood will be serving unique cocktails for the Cinco de Mayo celebration made, of course with Mexican tequila and mezcal. Pair their signature cocktails with traditional Mexican snacks like elote and queso fundido and enjoy their live music from Thursday through Saturday.
Lure Fishbar, Miami
If there was an award for the longest Cinco de Mayo celebration (and there should be), it would go to Lure Fishbar. From May 1st through May 8th, Lure will offer a series of taco and Avion Tequila pairings. How about Tuna with a soy vinaigrette paired with an Ocean Front, a cocktail made with Avion Silver, fresh pineapple and lime?
