Taco Fiesta at 555TEN

June 2019

With the hottest restaurants, clubs, and live entertainment at your feet, living in Midtown West means that you are at the epicenter of fun in Manhattan. Since the weather is (finally) getting warmer in New York City, you’ll want to get out and experience all of the diversions this vibrant neighborhood has to offer. But the good times will often come to you, as 555TEN hosts frequent parties and gatherings where residents of these luxury Midtown West apartments can meet their neighbors, see friends, and feast on some delicious food.

Recently, 555TEN’s residents were treated to a taco fiesta in the building’s all-season rooftop club — a space 650 feet above the city that offers stunning panoramic skyline views. This wasn’t just your typical “Taco Tuesday.” As with most things 555TEN, this was a next-level experience.

This fiesta began as all fiestas should: with drinks. Beer and wine flowed like the Rio Grande. The liquid highlight of the evening had to be the margaritas — salt-rimmed glasses filled to the brim with fruity watermelon and tart classic margs were a hit. But everyone knows that you shouldn’t drink tequila on an empty stomach.

Guests didn’t have to as they indulged in and raved about gourmet dishes from south of the border, such as tacos stuffed with slow-cooked brisket, perfectly prepared chicken, and mouthwatering steak — all served with traditional fluffy rice and beans. And the sides and salsa were flowing, too. Partygoers dipped into the buttery guacamole, that had the slightest but most welcome kick to it, and cascaded rich, tomatoey salsa on their tacos and their tortilla chips. There was even a spicy spin on french fries. Between the fries, the chips, and crispy taco shells, there was a whole lot of crunching going on. Muy crujiente!

Things really got into full swing once the mariachi band — yes, a real mariachi band — started playing. While residents could have burned off those taco calories with a workout session in 555TEN’s world-class gym, or by swimming a few laps in the building’s pool, many chose to dance to the soaring sound of the band — especially the children who grabbed maracas and looked like mariachis in training.

There are many things that make a building a desirable place to live — like singular design, excellent location, stunning apartments with sweeping views, and world-class amenities. And you’ll find all of these at 555TEN. But it’s the community events, like this one, that make these Midtown West luxury apartments really feel like home.
