    Try the lamb barbacoa taco, from Ryan Sutton's review: "The chef takes the belly and ribs, rubs them in adobo, buries them in avocado leaves, and cooks them low and slow." Leia mais

    Something you don't get to try often: squid with black mole & chorizo mayo. If you're getting a cocktail, the Winter is bomb (mezcal, alpine walnut, & bourbon "mist") and so is the Saffron.

    the 3-course tasting is the play: guac for the table, plus each person gets tacos, a small plate, and dessert. among the starters the squid is a standout, and don't ignore the cocktail menu!

    Pistachio guacamole is amazing. Red snapper ceviche, asparagus with poached duck egg, soft shell crab tacos and lobster with cheese dish are a must try. Their new specialty margaritas are amazing.

    Whatever Alex Stupak did, worked! There is quite a difference between this new restaurant and the old Empellon. Start with, choose a tartare, go to tacos but please have one of the fulfilling entrees.

    In a town where tacos have become as interchangeable, Cocina's are becoming more focused, interesting and envelope-pushing by the month. The spring pea tacos is a perfect dish. Leia mais

    Start with Pistachio Guac and all the salsas! We never knew we’d be obsessed with a dish like Sliced Mango, or Squid, or Lamb Belly Barbacao! Satisfy your sweet tooth with 5-course dessert tasting!

    A fabulous reataurant. Great service, great food. Would recommend the roast carrots, the pastrami tacos and the arroz con leche desert. Simply delicious food.

    Order the Mexican sponge cake— it arrives deconstructed, the moist cubes of vanilla cake surrounded by bitter orange marmalade, crumbled brown butter streusel and café con leche ice cream. Leia mais

    Revelatory take on high-end Mexican food (not expensive though). Subtle, deep flavors with great ingredients. Lamb tartare is incredible, so is the octopus with chocolate mole. Trendy, dark space.

    I recommend the mango salad, the lobster fundido and the kale fundido with soft shell tacos. Not sure if this would become a "regular go-to" spot for me but if in the neighborhood I would drop in.

    Alex Stupak plays off Mexican flavors for an exciting, out-of-the-box menu that's totally his own. Don't miss Mat Resler's mezcal and tequila cocktails, either.

    There's a Pistachio Guac unlike any other. Dunk one of the thin masa crips in the creamy, nutty mixture, and you've got the ultimate bar snack. Leia mais

    The fish tacos are to die for! Also, the michelada is one of the best I've tried. So refreshing on hot summer day!

    Amazing food. Recommend getting many plates and sharing (size is right for that). Try: Guac, Roasted Carrots, Mango + Crab, Lobster Queso, Kale Taco, Scallop Taco. All so tasty!

    Do yourself a favor and order the pistachio guac, the melted tetilla cheese with lobster, and the pastrami tacos. You'll definitely leave happy!

    The guacamole was fantastic. We also loved the queso and some tacos. Can't go wrong with anything

    As everyone has said, the lobster queso is a must and if you have more than 5 people, get 2. Guacamole is great. Def do the 7 salsa sampler and do the flat iron steak.

    Lamb belly is incredible as is the guac and salsas (Arbol and tomatillo especially but all 7 are good). Do not get the lobster queso - waste of money and calories. Flan is very different...

    Chilaquiles, a traditional Mexican hangover cure that is typically made from leftovers, eggs and salsa-soaked fried corn-tortilla strips, is dressed up here with meaty maitake mushrooms. Leia mais

    Masa (ground cornmeal) from Tortilleria Nixtamal replaces most of the traditional flour. Maple syrup—smoked on-site—and ancho-spiked mole-poblano butter lend savory, spicy richness to the dish. $13.

    Try the tacos - I reco the shrimp, fish or chicken. And, don't forget about the guacamole and salsa sampler to start! It's a must!

    Use your knife to scrape every last caramelized bit of cheese from the cast iron pan for the Melted Tetilla Cheese with Lobster, Tomate Frito, and Kol (Yucatan stylewhite sauce).

    My life was just changed by a $9 pastrami taco. Also beet juice mescal cocktail. And you might as well try pistachio guac like everyone says.

    I don't care if you hate Brussel Sprouts, the Brussel Sprouts taco is one of the most incredible dishes in NYC. Pay with Cover and walk out happy.

    Lobster queso is pretty amazing & the space is gorgeous & not unbearably noisy. On nearly all other fronts, however, the wv location is far superior..not to mention much more wallet friendly.

    For brunch, the chilequiles miss the mark by not using regular corn tortilla chips. It also doesn't help when the poached eggs are undercooked and with an occasional bit of shell.
