The upscale-hacienda appearance of this justifiably popular restaurant showcases some of the best Mexican food in the city, courtesy of pioneering Mexican chef Richard Sandoval. Begin with a fresh mango mojito, then tuck into delicious roasted corn soup with huitlacoche dumplings, stuffed poblano peppers, and a smoky filet mignon taco with jalapeño escabeche. Next indulge in the tender roasted pork carnitas or the spicy chipotle shirmp. The bottomless margarita brunch
on the weekends can get loud but the local Upper East Siders still enjoy it.
