Tiny little place. Only 3 tables. Dont let that put you off. Food is good. However having ordered 2 mains and 2 drinks the bill came to $130. Seemed a little steep to us. 2 margaritas cost $56.

I visited on Saturday, March 12th. I was hesitant at first as there were no other diner present. However, the hostess welcomed us in and was very friendly and knowledgeable. For starters, we had Guacamole, Salsa and Tortilla Chips. The Guacamole was excellent and the Salsa the best I've had outside of Central America. Our meals (pictured below) were very... More

Found this little place on trip advisor. Wanted a nice bite to eat after a Broadway show. My husband and I were in the mood for Mexican and this is where we ended up. Not disappointed. TINY place but don't be afraid to give it a try. Food is delicious and staff is very nice.

I stopped here with some family for a quick lunch towards the end of our visit to NYC as much to tick off a Mexican meal during our stay as anything but boy was really glad we did! It's a very small place with only a dozen seats and after electing to take the bar stools the friendly Indian waitress... More

This is really great place for great latin music and the food is super. The staff is definitely awesome. You need to come here for their Guacamole and their chips and salsa. I highly recommend their signature margarita and the bartender makes it with a lot less sugar as a Margarita should be prepared so you can taste the tequila.... More

Ninth Avenue on Friday Happy Hour is a lively, boisterous scene. But as a woman alone, I walked many blocks looking for the right mix of energy, fun and flavor. In fact, I sat down, and then left, another Mexican place because it was far too impersonal and loud. I'm so glad I walked a little farther and found Mi... More

With only 3 tables (all for two) and 7 bar stools, you may be tempted to stop at the door and reconsider going in. If you do, you'll miss one of the best local dining experiences in New York. We recently dined here before a Broadway show on a chilly December evening. Entering the cozy dining room is areal treat.... More

This is a tiny mexican restaurant at 789 Ninth ave, between 52nd and 53rd. What a find! The owner's wife, Bena, took great care of us. If you love authentic, fresh Mexican food, this is the place to go. The prices are reasonable for midtown and you can easily stop here, get a bite to eat and walk to a... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
