The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

Lucharitos, a Mexican restaurant with a luchidor (Mexican wrestler) theme, came into being this past December. As owner Mark LaMaina tells it, the place was born after his previous enterprise, Butta Cakes a cupcake cafe with breakfast, lunch and, on weekends, dinner was virtually destroyed by superstorm Sandy.

The new incarnation features table service as well as a beer and wine menu. In March, said La Maina, he expects Lucharito's to have a full liquor license and offer about 25 different tequilas.
