If you hear the words “Taco Electrico” and immediately picture a Mexican restaurant with neon signs where interns can plan a group dinner - well, actually, that’s pretty accurate. This place is a Mexican restaurant in a basement near Union Square, and it has a pretty short menu of things like guacamole, empanadas, and tacos. The food is average, but nothing costs over $15, and this place could work for a group meal when you’re mostly just interested in drinking margaritas.

Tacombi @ Fonda Nolita
Tacombi has an awesome Mexican courtyard, and gets serious points for creativity. All in all, we back the place, especially now that they have a liquor license.
Like their Nolita location, Tacombi’s Bleecker street spot works for an affordable group dinner.
