La Palapa Cocina Mexicana
New York, NY 10003
Village Voice's Description
While more dinner destination than bar, Margaritte Malfy and Barbara Sibley's upscale East Village Mexican restaurant is still home to one of the finest happy hours we know of in downtown. From 5 to 7 p.m. at the bar, well-drinks and popular house cocktails are all half-off. This includes the fresh-fruit margaritas in a choice of flavors (pomegranate, passion fruit, hibiscus tamarind, blood orange, and more), usually $9, now $4.50; and the white hibiscus sangria, a hibiscus-flower-infused white wine, usually $8, now $4.
Tips from foursquare
A "palapa" is an open-air, thatched-roof structure; they're useful common spaces on hot, sunny days. Get the jicama with lime and chile, a popular and refreshing treat for just such days.
Best frozen margaritas! Food comes out quick & hot. Great Mexican food and great service. Guacamole isn't special but the 2 green sauces are amaze!
The blood orange margaritas were amazing! As were the chicken enchiladas!
Huevos Rancheros are amazing with a side of sweet plantains
Get the tacos or quesadillas with al pastor de pork. With a side of plantains and the best frozen margaritas in the city, of course.
