It was a beautiful day yesterday, and we had a few things to do on Columbus Day, but we still needed a place to eat lunch. Madison Square Eats was nearby, and we hadn’t been over to the latest incarnation yet.
One of the new stands at Madison Square Eats this time is Delaney Barbecue: Tacotown. Delaney Barbecue exploded on the NYC dining scene last year, with a critically-acclaimed restaurant in Williamsburg, and later a stand on the High Line.
We know Daniel Delaney from his pre-restaurant days, when he ran the website VendrTV. Daniel produced videos about some of the best street vendors in NYC, then took trips around the country to visit other great street vendors across the USA.
At the VendrTV 1st Anniversary Party, Daniel told us his dream was to open a barbecue restaurant, and that he was going down to Austin to check some things out. He came back from Austin with an old-fashioned smoker, and started putting Delaney Barbecue together.
We haven’t been to Delaney Barbecue yet, but we did get to Daniel’s latest endeavor, Tacotown, at Madison Square Eats.
