    Duck can be shared with 3-4ppl. I could eat 4 broccoli tamales- they were so good. You must get their signature corn meringue dessert. Copia with pineapple purée was small but tasty. BLUE TORTILLA FTW

    Presentation and service was great, food was pretty good, but small portions and quite expensive.

    Tlayuda is a delicious plate perfect for sharing. Husk meringue and corn mousse is a must try!

    Stunning upscale Mexican food. Don't leave without ordering the cobia or duck carnitas.

    Think it's a little overrated sans the corn dessert...

    Proof that one of the best restaurants in the city can have some of the nicest people too! Duck mole and husk meringue!

    Great for lunch, brunch or dinner. Dinner: they suggest sharing 6 courses for 2. I'd say 4 to 5 are enough especially if you get the duck carnitas and the meringue. Brunch: BEST HUEVOS RANCHEROS EVER!

    The entire menu is gluten-free, which was an amazing surprise. Cocktails (the anti histamine and the margarita) were delicious, as is the duck and the raw sliced fish! Also loved the tamal.

    Enrique Olvera brings his vision of modern Mexican cuisine filtered through a global prism to NYC. The stark room and concise menu reveal unexpectedly bright, inventive, and often forceful flavors. Read more

    Chef-owner Enrique Olvera and chef de cuisine Daniela Soto-Innes won over New York with triumphs like lush, crackly-skinned duck carnitas for two and their cornhusk meringue with silky corn mousse. Read more

    Carnitas de pato are delicious, but cobia al pastor is the big star here. I recommend try one plate of each section and ask the sommelier about the wine list.

    Unique flavors, fun plates to share. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable, and it was fun to hear about the Obamas visit!

    Excellent inventive Mexican cuisine. You can't go wrong with the uni tostada, duck carnitas, or corn meringue. The portions are quite large for sharing plates like the duck and tlayuda.

    Cobia al pastor is outstanding. If you are ordering duck carnitas be aware it's going to be a lot of food even for three people, but really worth it.

    Very good but I prefer my Mexican to be more traditional. Short rib taco was our favorite dish.

    Impeccable space & design, amazing service & very innovative food.. but outrageously priced. Def best enjoyed on an expense account 👌🏽

    Super popular place with a different approach to the Mexican cuisine: you'll hate it or love it. Brunch is ok, dinner is a more recommended experience. Reservation is a must. Save room for the churros

    By far, the best Mexican restaurant in the city, though you'll certainly pay for it.

    Acoustics are difficult. We sat at a 5-top in a corner and couldn't hear the waiter or each other. Also, our waiter wasn't very attentive.

    The Lamb Barbacoa is fantastic and the husk merengue best desert.

    Incredibly expensive for what it is. I feel I've had much better Mexican food elsewhere, all things considered.

    The bean salad and branding pair nicely. The guac is among the best in the city, and the interior is beautiful. Great spot to take clients.

    The duck enmolados are excellent and the short ribs were insanely good. The gose michelada is genius.

    Get the meringue for dessert! It's light and not too sweet.

    The duck carnitas are delicious, very moist and flavorful, but a little overpriced for what they are. The calamari is very unique and a must get.

    If management is reading, the secret of a great michelada is a really cold beer served in a cold glass, you should never add I've as this dilutes the flavors of the mix.

    Come hungry and eat everything. If the cobia al pastor is on the menu, it's a must order. Duck carnitas also lives up to the hype.

    Crack into the husk meringue (made from burnt, blended corn husks). It's a delicately sweet/savory pod filled with a mousse of cream, sugar and mascarpone.

    Been here 5+ times
    Crazy pricey but the flavors are WOW. They recommend 3 dishes per person for a full meal but it's more like 2 or 1 for a light meal. My party of 5 shared 8 dishes and it was too much.

    The place is amazing, but go with an open mind - don't expect typical Mexican food. Expect GOOD Mexican food but with a gourmet twist.
