Many of us wear black, but Tacombi knows that New Yorkers secretly like bright colors. Just look at their locations - they’re full of light and covered in pastels. And that’s about half the appeal of eating at a Tacombi. It feels like you’re on vacation. Stop by for tacos and margaritas the next time some co-workers want to go out. This isn’t the top Mexican food in the city, but it’s far from the worst, and it’s affordable as well.

Finally, someone figured out that an Italian restaurant near Penn Station that serves food people want to eat would do well.
La Pecora Bianca
A pleasant Italian restaurant in Nomad that makes all of its pasta from whole grains, we don’t love La Pecora Bianca, but we can accept it.

Bar San Miguel
A Carroll Gardens Mexican bar and restaurant, owned by Jim Cramer from CNBC. Surprisingly, it is entirely devoid of yelling. It’s pretty damn good, too.
There's nothing memorable about the Mexican food at Rosie's, but it's a nice enough space for a margarita and guacamole.
Playa Betty’s is a fun place to drink margaritas with a big group on the Upper West Side.

Los Tacos No. 1
Some of the best tacos in New York City are hiding from you in the back of Chelsea Market. It’s time you went and found them.
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.
