Good Move is a little spot in Greenpoint that’s basically just a small bar and a few tables, Weezer playing on the stereo, and some very solid tacos. There isn’t much atmosphere, but there is a full list of cocktails, so we’d recommend it if you’re in the neighborhood and dining solo. Order some tacos (we like the al pastor and the fried fish) and a drink at the bar, and repeat as necessary.

Jajaja is a vegan Mexican restaurant on the LES. Is it the best Mexican in the city? No. But if you’re a vegan, you’ll probably be into it.
The Empellón in MIdtown is bigger and fancier than either of the Empellóns downtown, and it’s good to know about if you work in the area.
When your tequila list is longer than your menu, we start to worry. The food at Añejo would be wonderful, but sadly they take the “small” in “small plates” really seriously.

When a Mexican restaurant you love tells you to eat at another Mexican restaurant, you listen. That’s how we discovered Acapulco Deli, and you should discover it too.
