I don't care if you hate Brussel Sprouts, the Brussel Sprouts taco is one of the most incredible dishes in NYC. Pay with Cover and walk out happy.

Pastrami tacos ohhhhh yes.
Debora O.
Do not miss out on the delicious Pistachio Guacamole, it is to die for! The spicy cucumber margarita is a must as well!
Irma Z.
I recommend the mango salad, the lobster fundido and the kale fundido with soft shell tacos. Not sure if this would become a "regular go-to" spot for me but if in the neighborhood I would drop in.

Possibly the best guac I've ever had. . Lana is a kickass bartender. Oh - and their tequila!! What a selection. New neighborhood fave.
Corinna P.
My life was just changed by a $9 pastrami taco. Also beet juice mescal cocktail. And you might as well try pistachio guac like everyone says.

There is a dish with melted cheese and lobster. This should really go without saying, but ORDER THAT.
Jeana C.
Amazing food. Recommend getting many plates and sharing (size is right for that). Try: Guac, Roasted Carrots, Mango + Crab, Lobster Queso, Kale Taco, Scallop Taco. All so tasty!

Get the Michelada. It's incredible.

You should get the Sauvignon Blanc Hager from Austria, great wine. Perfect with Stupak's food.

The Wall Street Journal
Chilaquiles, a traditional Mexican hangover cure that is typically made from leftovers, eggs and salsa-soaked fried corn-tortilla strips, is dressed up here with meaty maitake mushrooms.

everything is delicious. no reservation? just sit at the bar.
Inspired Mexican plates and extensive agave spirits collection
Paws up for the best guacamole in NYC. For realz.
A curvaceous, white brick interio sets the mood for the seriously shareable Mariscos (like mezcal-cured ocean trout w/ roe & cream cheese) at EC.

The Queso Fundido (melted cheese) with lobster and flour tortillas is to die for. Take it from a Mexicana wo likes to eat well.
Get the lobster queso dish to split. Best. Thing. Ever.
