Javelina, New York's first authentic Tex-Mex restaurant was created from the mind of Matt Post. After moving to NYC in 2005 he was stunned to find no great Mexican restaurant that reminded him of his favorite Dallas Tex-Mex restaurants. After countless conversations with other frustrated Texans and Tex-Mex aficionados, he decided that he'd take matters into his own hands and so he decided start his own restaurant, based off of the menu items from restaurants he grew up eating at down in Texas. Javelina opened in March of 2015 in Gramercy Park and is now known far and wide for it's margaritas, fajitas and of course, queso!
