    Cabrito is in fact an eponymous dish served in Latin America and spread to the American Southwest; this is made from the meat of a kid, which is actually a young goat. So Cabrito is more than just a name of a casual cantina in Manhattan, it is also one of their more popularly served meals. Rubbed with sour orange, garlic, and chile, then slow roast in banana leaf.

    Rosa Mexicano is in actual fact a chain, with each having its own secret gifts. Neither chic, nor intimate like its older brother and sister, it comes across as downright gaudy.

This is a dedicated Mexican tavern decorated in silver lanterns and hand painted tile. Co-owner chef Julian Medina goes to town on the guacamoles which are mashed to order at the bar, as for the rest, he skips and hops all over Mexico. Oaxac ... read more >

    The mahi mahi tacos don't disappoint and in a nice celebrity story, a Mercadito aspiring actress/waitress saw Quentin Tarantino out for a walk, ran up to him, gave him a card and offered a round of drinks on her if he returned. He did, the next day, bringing along Benicio Del Toro – now that's a waitress who thinks on her feet! Patricio Sandoval is the Mexico City born chef-owner and Mercadito is ... read more >

    Situated in the Grand Central Terminal, Lower Dining Concourse you will find Zocalo and they make the best passion fruit margarita to go.
