I don't really drink much so I cannot comment on the vast selection of tequilas, but the short menu of Mexican food is interesting and the food we had looked and tasted great. I visited twice in a year and it didn't disappoint.

My girlfriend started off the evening by sitting down at the table and proceeding to tell me that she doesn't like places like this (trendy). By the end of the evening, she said that she would be begging me to come back here again. If...More

My girlfriend, a friend and I went here on a Saturday night for drinks, food, and catching up. The place can easily be unnoticed as it doesn't have a name outside, which gives a local feel to it. Inside, the place is lightly dimmed, with...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
