The Street Photographer: Tacombi at Fonda Nolita, New York

Along the leafy streetscapes of Nolita, brick apartments melt into discerning fashion boutiques and places to eat below, with the pocket keeping a sense of calm often lost in the bustle of a mega city. At the top end of Elizabeth Street, the unexpected glow of lightbulbs and bursts of colour peek out of a converted garage, luring passersby inside. Upon closer inspection, Tacombi at Fonda Nolita is an intriguing Mexican den, bringing the beach vibe of the Yucatán Peninsula to the streets of New York. Owner Dario Wolos has paired with chef and Food Network personality Aarón Sánchez to devise a menu of tacos filled with lush slow-cooked meats and fragrant toppings, served from the Tacombi (taco plus VW Kombi). Check out Tacombi at Fonda Nolita on The Street Photographer. more
