Tips

  • The avocado dessert is actually a really tasty key lime pie with citrus ice
  • Fantastic atmosphere, formidable lunch menu, great cocktails.
  • The avocado dessert is not an avocado! The visuals doesnt sync with the flavor haha but a must try!
  • Very solid Brussels sprouts
  • Guacamole to start was delicious with all of the flavored sauces. Short rib is delicious! Combination of flavors is delectable. The experience overall was wonderful.
  • Guacamole/salsa flight and short ribs are overrated, but tacos and cocktails are solid. Downstairs bar can be a raucous white-collar bro-fest, but the upstairs dining area is an oasis above it all.
  • NYMag Where to Eat (1/2018): "There's an excellent steak tartare, and a delicious confit of short rib. Save room for avocado parfait, a made-for-Instagram creation that lives up to the hype."
  • it was a madhouse in here when I went for drinks. chips with all the sauces and especially the guacamole was impressive
  • Spicy cucumber margarita + fish tempura tacos + shishito peppers
  • A roving bar cart stocked with small-batch mescal and tequila is wheeled throughout the space, while servers convoy platters ofmodernMexicanfare toyour table.
  • inventive Mexican cuisine
  • Great spot - albeit a little expensive - would definitely recommend with parents or for nice date. Tacos are top notch, as well as corn
  • Great drinks!
  • The guac and salsa is a must. Had the falafel tacos and sticky rice tamal, everything was delicious. We will be back!
  • Eater NYCs 18 Best Splurge Meals The ice cream tacos are some of the citys best tacos, and the faux-avocado (made with lime curd) recalls the best avant-garde desserts of the aughts.
