Nachos with shoestrings and more at Denisse Chavez’ Gowanus spot
Denisse Chavez — one of my favorite chefs — has opened a concession within a piece of nightlife real estate, a bar and restaurant called Taqueria El Atoradero at Parklife in the burgeoning Third Avenue corridor of the Gowanus neighborhood.
Chavez started her career presiding over a huge, floor-mounted stewpot in the middle of a South Bronx bodega, making the city’s mellowest pork carnitas with the assistance of several local women. Next, she moved down the block to a small Mexican café, attracting admirers from all over the city.
