Village Voice's Description

Getting a seat at this cute little Lower East Side spot can sometimes be difficult, but don't worry, it's worth the wait. Step in and you'll understand why it's so popular with dates: it¹s cozy, dimly lit and flowing with good booze. Exposed brick, thick wooden tables, paintings and hanging paper lanterns give the place a homey, intimate feel. Don't expect some kind of fusion cuisine--the name actually refers to the fact that the restaurant borders both a Latino and Chinese neighborhood. The food is upscale Mexican, with dishes like mole enchiladas, grilled ahi tuna with spicy mango pico de gallo, and tacos stuffed with ingredients like citrus-marinated tilapia and calamari. The bar features a huge selection of tequilas and small-batch mezcals, available in cocktails or straight-up with a sangrita chaser. The downtown crowd also indulges in margaritas, sangria and other Latin American specialty cocktails.—Keith Wagstaff

    Go to Barrio Chino and get the Grapefruit Margarita. Habanero if you need more hair on your chest.

  • Food Lover on 09/14/11

    Best dishes are ceviche, enchiladas verdes, and steak. Margaritas are fresh fruit and delicious. Food is very reasonably priced for the quality.
