Cafe El Presidente Coming to NoMad
A new Mexican restaurant is set to open in the NoMad District. Cafe El Presidente is a project by the owners of the popular Nolita eatery Tacombi and Jason DeBriere, the former chef at Peels.
Details of the restaurant’s menus and hours are a bit scarce at the moment. We do know the cafe will offer service all throughout the day: coffee in the morning, taqueria fare during the day, and a seafood-based menu in the evening.
Given Tacombi’s strong reputation and chef Jason Debriere’s success at Peels and as guest contributor on programs like The Martha Stewart Show, we’re excited to see what they come up with. Word has it that they’ll even be making their own tortillas on site. Cafe El President plans to open in April in the space formerly occupied by Granduca Di Sicilia at 30 West 24th Street near Sixth Avenue.
