If you were to be saved by a taco, you’d probably want it to happen here, April Bloomfield’s latest—and maybe least expected—outpost with partner in crime Ken Friedman. Set next to a hotel lobby in blossoming foodie neighborhood Murray Hill, Salvation Taco is where Bloomfield gets to play (very loosely) with that beloved culinary fixture. Authenticity takes a backseat to imaginative license, as in the subtly English-inspired Roasted Cauliflower with Curried Crema Taco. That attitude is matched with technique and bold flavors behind the bar, where Mixologist Sam Anderson puts out everything from an innovative modification of the Ramos Gin Fizz (actually shortening execution time) to a cocktail made with al pastor-infused mezcal, Campari, and Sherry. The long, often packed space defies the meticulous professionalism behind the menus, with unabashedly festive splashes of color and sparkling lights.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Fly by Night: Spring 44 Gin, Cinnamon-Vanilla Bean Syrup, Orange Blossom, Lemon Juice, and Sea Salt
  • American Firing Squad: Chamomile-infused Old Overholt Rye, Mulled Malbec Grenadine, Amargo-Vallet Angostura, Orange Juice, and Lemon Juice
