Flats Fix is a little place next door to Coffee Shop in Union Square, and it’s from the same people. This place specializes in Mexican food, however, and it’s a lot smaller than its neighbor. There’s just one long bar and a few tables, and the atmosphere is very casual. So if you want to sit down and eat a quick taco or a torta near Union Square, this is a good place to know about. They typically do a few varieties of each, like brisket, pastrami, and carnitas, and there’s also a full bar if you want some tequila to go with your food.

As we’re all well aware, Mexican food in Manhattan generally blows. Empellon hasn’t come to save the day, but it isn’t adding to the problem either. While nothing blew us away, the food was solid with the good outweighing the bad.
