Video: Where Do the Locals Eat in Inwood?
The Internets Celebrities, the video team behind the dollar menu Big Mac and this ode to bodegas, are riding along the A train finding out where locals love to eat. Their latest stop? 207th Street in Inwood.
The neighborhood's Latin American population has no shortage of restaurants to serve them. Three of the four restaurants locals mention—Guadalupe, La Nueva Espana, and La Reina del Chicharron—serve Dominican or Mexican food. They settle on La Reina, "the queen," where we get to see a few plates of crisp fried pork and chicken and one counter worker's "cleaver action." It's just as sexy as it sounds, with or without the hairnet.
