After two unsuccessful attempts I finally got a chance to try popular new restaurant bartaco. Located in Port Chester behind the Willett House, bartaco seems to be where everyone's headed to cure their "Januarys". This time we tried it on a Tuesday at 7pm and had much better luck. The staff was incredibly accommodating - we had a large party with a reservation accidentally marked down for the wrong night and they got us a table right away. We started out with a carafe of the house margaritas and a large platter of the chef's choice - 9 tacos, 3 sides, guacamole, spicy corn and tamales. This gave us an opportunity to see what we liked and order more items to follow up. All items are ordered by using golf pencils on a little score card menu and then putting up a sign indicating you're ready to order more food. Its a fun atmosphere and great for groups but I wasn't blown away by the food. The guacamole was good, as was the spicy grilled corn but the tacos lacked something for me. By 10pm when we left the place was almost completely full. Seems like a great spot for a late night cocktail or a taco after the movies next door. They only take reservations for 10 or more so keep that in mind if you're headed there on a Thursday-Saturday, last time we tried to go the wait was 3 hours. I'll be back but I won't be rushing.
