Tres Carnes (688 Sixth Avenue), which opened on Sixth Avenue in the Flatiron District last week, specializes in "Texican" cuisine. As the nickname suggests, the food is a combination of Mexican food and Texas-style barbecue, which is delicious however you decide to name it. Among the specialty dishes are the smoked brisket burrito, which comes with Mexican yellow rice, "Charros" pintos and a fire-roasted salsa, and runs for $8.73. Then, of course, there are the tacos, which are worth the $8.
A liquor license has yet to be secured, but soon enough, Tres Carnes will offer their renditions of a Michelada. Check out the menu, give this place a shot and let us know what you think.
