    Location is closing on 8/31. Too bad, great lunch specials. They have two other restaurants in the city.

    Definitely not light fare. Even the guac seems to have oil in it.

    There's a lot of east village charm and character here. Surprising for the UWS. Brunch is a great deal.

    Head to this well-reviewed restaurant for monster tortas, tacos made with fresh tortillas, hearty egg dishes, and fresh baked pastries. Nothing on the menu is over $12. Order the avocado cornbread.

    Fish taco special was solid. And the Valentina cocktail was killer too. Good food all around here.

    Make sure to order the meatballs and chorizo. Standout dish. The avocado corn bread is also great.

    Delicious salmon cooked in a banana leaf! Spicy, but not too spicy. Platanos were awesome!

    The cazuelas of fresh fish or shrimp are where it's at! Always such fresh & bright flavors. Go here instead of Rosa, the drinks are better too & the bar much more fun to sit at.

    Slightly elevated Mexican home cooking in a cozy and fun setting. Though not a destination restaurant, it's a boon to the Upper West Side's Mexican food scene.

    Start with antojitos—street snacks—like the fun meatball and chorizo fondue or the avocado cornbread. The avocado adds "a moist texture that people really enjoy and find interesting." Read more

    The octopus taco was fantastic. Even at the insane $4 a pop. Ceviche with conch. So good. The large dishes of stewed pork and fava beans. Even though I was sad Recipe closed. This is Muy bueno too.
