If you spend a lot of time in Soho, you could have easily walked past this California-style Mexican lunch spot on Thompson Street thousands of times without noticing it. But once you know it’s there, you’ll start thinking about the food every time you’re in the neighborhood. More than half the menu is dedicated to juices and smoothies, which you can use to supplement your zucchini blossom quesadilla or chicken torta with avocado. The small space only has a few tables, as well as a little tree of ginger shots sitting on the counter.
