Like the one in Nolita, Tacombi’s Bleecker street location feels a little like a a charming street in Mexico: there are murals, string lights, and lots of people who are happy to be there. They open at 11am everyday of the week, so come here for breakfast tacos at brunch or a weeknight dinner to reunite with your friend who you haven’t seen since they started their own air freshener startup.

Mermaid Oyster Bar
We love the Mermaid restaurants, but an oyster bar? I guess fifteen or so varieties qualify you, but we were hoping for a deeper raw bar and a little more excitement. Where's the oyster inspiration?
J.G. Melon Downtown
A new J.G. Melon in Greenwich Village, with new owners but the same great burger. MacDougal Street just got instantly better.
Tokyo Record Bar
Tokyo Record Bar is a basement in Greenwich Village where you eat a seven-course tasting menu and request songs from their vinyl collection.

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.

La Contenta is a Mexican bar and restaurant on the Lower East Side that’s the ultimate neighborhood hang for fish tacos and tequila.
Gran Electrica serves simple, excellent Mexican food and creative cocktails. It also has a great back patio.
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.
