Decent Mexican food near NYU/Union Square. The tortas were flavorful. The tea was a bit bland. I expected more flavor from it. They had a variety of sauces and the dining area was extremely roomy. The bathroom was downstairs and very stuffy. Very hard to...More

We found this place by mistake but what a great mistake!!! just around the corner from 14th street Union Square station. A small corner restaurant where you order at the cashiers and wait for your name to be called out, it might not sound exciting...More

We found this funny Mexican cafe by chance, after the disappointment to find permanently closed a burger restaurant that was a couple of buildings away. The Tortaria immediately let us forget the bad news, it's a nice place, with good background music. The room is...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
