Mexican / Indian
Alta Calidad’s chef-owner Akhtar Nawab brings New York City’s melting-pot sensibility to Mexican cuisine. Drawing on his Indian heritage, Nawab marries the flavors of multiple flags to create exciting new dishes like chicken tinga tacos as well as chorizo verde and egg roti. He proves that fusion cuisine, done without any gimmicky bells, whistles and cloyingly saccharine sauces of yesteryear, is having another moment, right here and now at Time Out Market. Simply put: Nawab’s food is modern, internationally inspired and altogether authentic to his unique New York story.
