5 Spots To Celebrate National Guacamole Day In NYC

Guac lovers rejoice! The day has finally come to the nation where guac is not only not extra, but the perfect amount for how much our lunch cravings demand! This Saturday, head to one of these eateries to celebrate America’s favorite dip and the things that unite us most with our Mexican neighbors as they celebrate their independence day September 16th too.



Jam-packed with cilantro, jalapeños, tomatoes, onion, queso fresco, and the perfect level of chuck in the avocado, this guacamole is textured enough to dive right into with a spoon, though they’ll still give you chips in case.

The Black Ant


Making its signature Black Ant Guacamole, this rendition includes, Granada and wakame-blank and salt sprinkled on the top to give the perfect amount of saltiness to help cut the stiffest of margarita pairings.

This red guacamole moves away from the traditional green goodness with a lot more tomato and chipotle. In another move into the bizarro-world of guacamole, try ordering it with grasshoppers for an added crunch.
