The best margaritas in the City. If you like super spicy, ask for strawberry habanero. I crave them.

Great guacamole, delicious margaritas. The hibiscus and tamarind margarita. Food was really good and tasty. We had the enchilada mole, the lamb dish and the camarones borrachos. All delicious.

Would have never found this spot had it not been for a recommendation of a friend. This is the best Mexican food I've found yet. Its a small space but packs a big punch. The margaritas are off the chart. I recommend upgrading to "top...More

Great place to eat, definitively overpriced considering the portion size and quality, even by NYC standards though. Would be 5 stars if the prices were 25% lower. Everything on the menu is great.

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
