Join Hester Street Fair in celebrating Mexican culture with a line-up of vendors bringing you the best in Mexican eats, crafts and music.
Cinco De Mayo, a celebration of Mexico’s unlikely win over the French army in 1861, has become a wildly popular day in America to embrace Mexican and Mexican American culture and this year Hester Street Fair has gathered friends, food, piñatas, Bocanegra beer, and good vybes to pay homage and celebrate.
Alejandro Alcocer of l’estudio will be grilling all day long with this Cinco De Mayo mix-and-match plate. Offering up leg of lamb, Cornish hens, duck sausage, homemade lamb chorizo, 5 chile rub flank steak, hanger steak adobado, pork shoulder al pastor, grilled and roasted vegetable selections from the grill, you can top it all off with quinoa or potato salad, cilantro and sweet onion al escabeche, green pepper, wild mushroom and tomatillo fricasse, pico de gallo and l’estudio fiery salsa… stop drooling and pre-buy your plate before we sell out!
