Foursquare Tips

  • One of the boldest Mexican menus in NYC taking a refined and super modern twist on Mexican cuisine. The cocktails are terrific and if you're feeling daring they'll bring you some fried grasshoppers!
  • Loved the ambiance. The music is not too loud, so it's great if you plan to talk to people! Great food and desserts (try the churros). Read the menu well, some dishes and drinks are made with insects.
  • One of the best guacamoles in the game, but it's served with soft tortillas instead of chips--make sure to ask for the latter and they'll bring it. Don't miss the unbelievable churros for dessert!
