The thing about Bartaco in Port Chester, NY is the fact that they somehow transformed the experience of eating simple food like tacos into something sexy. It reminded me of what Abercrombie & Fitch did with their clothing- finding young, fit and sexy people to wear and sell their clothing. Bartaco did the same with their food, website and menu. The site is beautiful, easy to navigate and well designed for their young audience. Their menu is simple yet filled with items that are a little risqué for the norm. Great job.
When it comes to the restaurant decor, the same technique is applied. So once you start drinking the Bartaco CoolAid, the food started to taste good as well. Well, good enough anyway.
Grilled Corn with lime, cayenne, cotija cheese
Guacamole, Chipotle Slaw, Spicy Cucumber SaladCheese Quesadilla and Plantains
Rotisserie Chicken Pork Tamale
Tacos: steak, pork, chicken Tacos: baja fish

The food is not superb but pretty good. The variety is amazing. It’s fresh and interesting enough to keep the diners entertained, engaged and wanting to come back again for the party atmosphere and interact with the casual and easy going wait staff. I was pleased and happy.
