This is a little unassuming place that makes the best guacamole you'll ever find - fresh when you order. Also very reasonable main courses - I had the breakfast burrito (all day brunch menu) which was magnificent. Lots of interesting and different food. Check out...More

Stopped for lunch and a cold beer after a long walk through central park. I had the chef special burger which was deliciously prepared. A couple glasses of pilsner wash it down. While everything was delicious, my bill was a little north of $30.

Went here for a quick dinner on a Saturday night. The restaurant was not busy but the service would make you think otherwise. The staff acted as if they couldn't keep up and it took them a long time to even come greet us at...More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. I felt a little underdressed, but I got over it. Food was perfect, and was a very good price for the portion size, had we not been staying in a hotel we would have brought leftovers home. I would...More

The hostess was unpleasant and had a sour demeanor throughout our meal (we sat near the door). Our waiter was slow to refill drinks and fairly inattentive. The food wasn't worth the price we paid but the appetizers were good. The tables are very much...More

"Hi there, it's chef Alex Garcia. In my kitchen there are no borders just fun delicious food made from the best ingredients I can get my oven mits on! As a native Cuban I grew-up appreciating the simple joys of food and conviviality centered around the family table, so here at AG Kitchen you'll find the food I enjoy cooking and eating with my friends and family. It's my take on American and Latin classic comfort food. There's my signature ceviches, and other starters and salads, a collection of burgers done my way, a delicious take on Roasted Chicken served Brazilian style, plus a paella style dish for 1 or more and mix and match surf and turf. It's always a dinner party at A.G. Kitchen.
