Fodor's Review

Make a quick detour off heavily trafficked Broadway into this pleasantly bustling Mexican cantina for one of the best dining options around Times Square. The bi-level eatery has a festive, celebratory vibe, with several seating options: bar, balcony, main dining room, and ceviche bar. Foodies flock here for three types of guacamole (traditional, fruited, and spicy), a trio of well-executed ceviches, and Mexico City–style tacos with Negra Modelo–braised brisket, and quesadillas studded with black truffle and huitlacoche (a corn fungus known as the "Mexican truffle"). There's an extensive tequila selection—upward of 100 brands. Adventurous palates are drawn to tacos featuring chili-studded dried grasshoppers, lobes of seared foie gras, and caramelized veal sweetbreads. There are two other locations, in Greenwich Village and on the Upper East Side.
