Each week, we feature a local business. Today, we’ll introduce you to Caliente, a Mexican restaurant on Trinity Place.

There’s a new place in Lower Manhattan to find fresh, authentic burritos, tacos and fajitas.

At Caliente, these specialities, along with Mexican soups, quesadillas and enchiladas, are available in an unassuming storefront at 97 Trinity Place.

“We like to offer personal service, to remember our customers’ names,” said co-owner Stacey Tzortzatos. “When you get to the front of our line, we like to know just what you’ll want.”

With toppings ranging from steak to pork to shrimp, and a $5.99 meal deal for all students and teachers, Caliente provides a welcome addition—and an escape from 200-person lines—in the Lower Manhattan burrito lunch scene.
