A curvaceous, white brick interio sets the mood for the seriously shareable Mariscos (like mezcal-cured ocean trout w/ roe & cream cheese) at EC.

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.

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.

Try the lamb barbacoa taco, from Ryan Sutton's review: "The chef takes the belly and ribs, rubs them in adobo, buries them in avocado leaves, and cooks them low and slow."

There is a dish with melted cheese and lobster. This should really go without saying, but ORDER THAT.

Order the Mexican sponge cake it arrives deconstructed, the moist cubes of vanilla cake surrounded by bitter orange marmalade, crumbled brown butter streusel and caf con leche ice cream.

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.
