(Not here to tell you again that my fav carne asada and pescado tacos are at La V.) but wanted to mention a few changes there. The talented chef, Darren Carbone, who was brought up from Phila. to be the Exec Chef at La V- left in Dec. (and is now the Ex Chef at Rosa Margarita>> check out his aMAZing Burnt Orange Scallop Ceviche there.) and one of the existing Mexican chefs was promoted to head chef at La V. The cafe menu changed a bit. No more duck tacos. New menu additions available in the Cafe are: Pork Belly tacos w/ pineapple, and garlic crema; Ancho Short Rib tacos; and Huarachas (same torta toppings but on a thick masa 'sandle' instead of a bun.) The 2 new tacos were good to excellent, but I'm sticking w/ my previous joneses. The carne asada huaracha was super delic; def will get that in the future. Fillings abundant, as usual, on all 3 of these new dishes.
Sorry I can't report on changes on the dining room menu; we never eat in there.I do know that they've stopped doing Lunch altogether- in the Dining Room (though the taqueria cafe is open lunches for takeout).
As to tables in the cafe part, there are only 2 now, set out after 4pm.
