The original Gitano is in Tulum, and now there’s a location on what used to be a big empty lot in Soho. This is great news for anyone who likes overpriced food and beverages, and it’s perfect for people who only eat at restaurants that are at least 50% nightclub. The menu here is pretty short, with a $16 grilled avocado, some unimpressive tacos, and a bowl of guacamole that costs $19 just because it can. If you want to grab a drink outside around a bunch of palm trees and disco ball, just get a quick one at the bar, and leave with your curiosity satisfied. But you don’t need to get a table or eat here.

This casual but hip restaurant is not an attempt at authentic Mexican, but rather an inspired interpretation using Latin flavors and fresh ingredients.
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.
