Village Voice's Description

Named after a plant (also known as moonflower) used by the Aztecs to prepare poultices and induce hallucinations, Toloache is Mexican restaurant with a wood-burning oven at its heart, from which fly a very good quesadilla featuring fresh huitaloche, queso fundido (Mexican fondue), and suckling pig, the latter with a crunchy piece of skin on top, though you must order extra tiny tortillas to go with it. The margaritas are diverse and generally delicious -- we liked the Frida Kahlo margarita, purple, fruity, and decorated with hibiscus. But while the traditional guacamole was good, the version labeled "frutas" and containing apples, mangoes, and peaches, was a misstep. A solid choice for a pre-theater dinner, with a pleasing, upbeat ambiance and generally good service.

Tips from foursquare

  • ZAGAT on 04/21/10

    Guacamole is served three ways here – and even has its own tasting menu.

  • Try the black truffle quesadilla or lobster tacos. The trio of guacamole, which includes a hot chipotle version and one with mango, apples and and pomegranate topping, is also a good bet.

  • The New York Times on 08/17/10

    Order a trio of guacamoles along with a margarita, and then ceviche, quesadillas and tacos with a second and — hey, now! — a third.

    Try the Langosta Taco here, made with buttery hunks of poached lobster sautéed with a chile de arbol–based morita salsa. It's one of NYC's 26 best tacos!

    Try the Langosta Taco, made with buttery hunks of poached lobster sautéed in a chile de arbol–based morita salsa. This decadent taco was named one of the best in New York.
