    For starters, I recommend the amazing swordfish. As an entrée, the Bacalao Negro is just absolutely, incredibly, unforgettably FANTASTIC. The kind of dish that you will remember years from now.

    One of the best surprises. Delicious chunks of swordfish with chips appetizer that you can get with guacamole for $17, and huaraches filet mignon was delicious and great portion!

    For $39, the "bottomless brunch" covers unlimited small plates and all the Sangria, Bloody Marys or Margaritas one can handle. (There is a two-hour limit to the bottomlessness.) Read more

    Great service, friendly staff and absolutely delicious meals set to satisfy any craving. Just a short walk away from Midtowns greatest assets. This place has a wonderful ambience!

    Pampano does an excellent Guacamole with warm chips, and although brunch entrees are across the board, it's well worth the stop for the laid back ambiance.

    Great atmosphere. I had the PAELLA abs it was piping hot, rich and delicious. A little salty. The gauc and chips were excellent.

    The Good: The food is amazing, even the salad was one of the best I've ever had. The Bad: Really, really expensive. The Verdict: Worth every penny.

    For those looking for upscale Mexican, Pampano strikes the right tone. The menu is primarily comprised of fish and the $28 prix fix is a steal!

    Glad my friend introduced me to this find for midtown lunch. Inexpensive and fish tacos are delish. Skip the chicken.

    It's a street-level job packing 100 wines from Latin America, 150 tequilas, mescals, south-of-the-border brewdogs, and fresh fruit sangrias fortified with the likes of pisco and schnapps Read more

    Killer guacamole and pork enchiladas. Throw in a couple of jalapeño margaritas and call it a Friday!

    Hottest habanero salsa on the planet. Also the crunchiest chips. Unless you have a soundproof helmet, eating them in the office is gonna turn some (less-fortunate) heads.

    Their Mexican small plates are called "botanas." The botanas you'll want are the tacos w/ slow-simmered-then-fried pork. Read more
