Lucha Libre Themed Taqueria To Open in NYC This Weekend

Nick Paglino

As I was walking down the street in Manhattan the other day, I noticed that a restuarant will be opening this Friday called "La Lucha," and it will be a Lucha Libre themed taqueria. I went home and googled the place, and found the following write-up posted over at, which takes a closer look at the new restaurant. The following is an excerpt from the article: "Introducing La Lucha, an upstart taqueria landing on Avenue A and simultaneously satisfying two critical needs in your life: viciously authentic Mexico City-style street tacos and Lucha Libre, opening this Friday.

First, let’s be clear, you aren’t going to get assaulted by Mexican wrestlers when you walk through the door—it’s just a tiny, eight-table dining room, colored in bright pink and plastered with masks, wrestling posters and ’60s Lucha movies projecting silently, for inspiration, on the wall. Which bodes well heading into your next night of fiery Mexican revelry."
