Early morning hours and a new late night menu are in the works for fall at Swell Taco in Patchogue Village.
Previously closed for the night at 10 p.m., Swell will be open soon until 1 a.m. Thursdays through Saturday nights, said co-owner Brooke Jankow, who also operates a Swell in Babylon.
The late night scene will only be happening in Patchogue, however.
Ownership had found this summer they would get a rush later into the night, so they decided on a 1 a.m. closing time and came up with a late-night menu.
“We’re adding lots of chips, nachos, and snack options right now,” said Jankow.
The 1 a.m. hours start next weekend.
The Swell Taco team is also working on some fall dinner specials for the season.
“We’re going to be serving enchiladas suizas, shrimp empanadas, chimichangas. It’s a little bit different from what we’ve done but we’re really excited to present it [the menu] to the community,” said Jankow.
Each meal will be served as a platter, which will include rice, fried black beans, sour cream and salsa.
Queso lovers will not want to miss out on the enchiladas suizas, she says.
“It’s a flour tortilla filled with cheese and smothered and baked in salsa verde.”
There will also be more live music with DJ’s that will accompany the Taco Tuesdays parties.
“We have a lot of fun ideas and things that we’re going to do to embrace the fall season,” Jankow said.
