It's been about nine months since vegetarian sandwich shop 'sNice closed up shop on the highly trafficked corner of Fifth Avenue and Third Street, and finally a new restaurant has been lined up for the space. Thanks to a temporary sign, we know that it'll be called El Habanero Tex Mex.
There are a handful of Tex Mex and Mexican restaurants on Fifth, including Lobo, Mezcal's, Rachel's and its new offshoot Varrio 408, Tacos Nuevo Mexico, Fatty Daddy Taco, and (Cal-Mex) Calexico. El Habanero will be jumping into a pretty crowded ring, but its has a few things going for it: Placement is prime, there's outdoor seating, and well-made enchiladas and fajitas are beloved by pretty much everybody.
There are no details out there yet that I could find, so will be interesting to see what develops.
