ITHACA, N.Y. — The Bickering Twins will host a grand opening of their brick-and-mortar restaurant on Tuesday, May 1.
Watch the twins prepare some tacos al pastor, one of the many specialties that will be available for lunch and dinner Tuesdays through Sundays.

The Bickering Twins are identical twin brothers Corey and Kevin Adelman who are opening their first restaurant together after running a catering business for the last two years.
They have also run weekly pop-up restaurants at the Lincoln Street Diner and Carriage House Cafe.
Bickering Twins will be a restaurant with a full bar and will feature Latin American cuisine with a focus on Mexican food.
The menu will include appetizers like pineapple jicama salad, shrimp ceviche tostadas, and Mexican-style empanadas filled with potatoes and spinach.
