    A perfect first date spot. Dim lighting with a red hue. Background music, but not overpowering. Social and lively, yet private. A great selection of drinks, and small, tasty, manageable plates.

    Love this spot! Perfect evening ambience, with a low lit bar for cocktails and restaurant dining for great food. Recommend the vegetarian or pescado tacos, so tasty! Tostadas too! 🌮

    Rose infused mezcal margaritas are what I go here for. And I don't even like tequila. Great and intimate atmosphere. They even have an upstairs section for dinner for larger groups.

    The kitchen churns out small bites that you won't find at your standard burrito joint like melted cheese with grasshoppers and tomato, and braised lamb in a chipotle sauce. Read more

    Get cozy in a velvet booth at this mescal bar adorned with folk art, statuettes, masks and other mementos of the co-owners’ travels. Taste the namesake spirit in a flight of three one-ounce pours. Read more

    Came here for Sunday brunch... The chips and guacamole are the best in NYC... Margaritas are handcrafted... Friendliest service. Great hidden Mexican food gem.

    The tacos de cazuela—tender stewed meats and vegetables served on a tortilla—offer a change of pace from the Puebla- and West Coast-style tacos found around town. Read more

    Service on point, flavors are solid. The food is delicious, decor lovely as well. Eat here while the chef is still cooking mama-style.

    Mixologist Miguel Aranda creates perfectly balanced Latin cocktails with an Asian influence. You might also catch an impromptu band, burlesque, or dance performance.

    Food is great! But when we were seated, we were greeted with a round of mezcal shots which we assumed were on the house since no one ordered it, but we were charged. Beware!

    More elegant than Barrio Chino round the corner, CM has comfy seating and creative drink menu for people who like their cocktails strong and spicy.

    The mojitos are fantastic. Come on a Wednesday night and see a band play upstairs while you dine or lounge on the sofas.

    The cocktails are great, especially at happy hour prices, but the service could improve. The "large" guac is TEENY...skip it!

    Another subpar Mexican spot. Decor is festive, margaritas are good (spicy cucumber!), but the food is below average and the chips and salsa are borderline embarrassing
