We fortuitously met both in the search for a permanent space and through the market circuit, and discovering that we had similar sensibilities in our approach to food, we knew we needed to do event together.
We promise an experience that's playful and bold yet refined - this is a chance for both of us to stretch our creativity and offer a meal that is more complex than what we can offer at the markets. It's a taste of all the good things to come!
And as always, we source as many ingredients as possible from local farmers and producers. We'll be finalizing the menu closer to the date as we confirm what's available at the market and through our farmers, we'll update this post as soon as we know.
About La Newyorkina
La Newyorkina is all about sharing the sweetness of Mexico. The frozen treats & other sweets I grew up which are part of the essence of who I am. I am very excited to share them with you but now, you can enjoy them without having to travel too far!

She originally attended with a focus on the savory side, but leaned towards the sweet. She spent more time on that side of the kitchen and eventually became a pastry chef.
About Lonestar Taco
Our inspiration evolved from a simple idea that breakfast tacos are something that warms the heart and nourishes the soul. In Texas, they're synonymous with hospitality, a bright point in your day and they're served with a smile. We're committed to working directly with farmers and purveyors in sourcing our ingredients to provide the best tasting and highest quality food.
