|

Promising the bohemian chic experience akin to the Mexican beach town its named after, Tulum Tacos & Tequila restaurant is set to open on Dec. 1 in Mineola.

Located at 230 Jericho Turnpike, Tulum’s signature vibe is captured across the restaurant’s boho lanterns, rustic wood, lush greenery, handmade artwork and Mexican tilework. The dining area includes 85 seats and a set of French doors that lead out to a 45-seat patio where guests will dine al fresco during warmer months.

The menu is blanketed with modern Mexican cuisine choices, including a lineup of classic street tacos that ranges from seared tuna and baja fish with shaved cabbage and lemon aioli to vegan and vegetarian-friendly soyrizo and chayote milanese with avocado & lemon crema. Carnivorous options abound, as well, with the likes of Pat LaFrieda’s A5 Wagyu.

The restaurant further offers an array of Tulum-inspired salads, snacks, and crudos, from fluke with Leche de Tigre to Hamachi Aguachile cucumber and jalapeno. There’s also traditional desserts that have a modern spin, such as Twinkie tres leches and spicy chocolate buñuelos.

Paired with the food options is an extensive collection of mezcals, tequilas, and other spirits. Tulum serves up signature margaritas and tequila cocktails, such as a watermelon-citrus Pink Peppercorn Paloma, reflecting the vibrant flavors of the Yucatán.

Once it’s open, Tulum Tacos & Tequila will be open nightly for happy hour, 4-6 p.m., and dinner officially starting on Dec. 1. A taco takeout window, marked by a neon sign, will open in early 2023, and brunch will start being served by the spring, according to the restaurant’s owners.

The restaurant will be open Monday to Friday, from 4-10 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 4-11 p.m. and Sunday, from 4-10 p.m.
