Can't decide if it's the ambiance, the service or the food. Or maybe the Sangria!! The overall decor is rustic and fun. The service is fast and the server was hot (at least as hot as the salsa). I got the ridiculously strong and delicious...More

I'm a burrito snob and I know New York City is not the epicenter of good Tex Mex, but Tortuga makes a good burrito. A wee bit on the salty side but I've eaten here so many times. Recommended.

I was a fan of Paquitos on Third Avenue and 16th St., which has been closed for a little while now. I like the Paquito's on First and 9th Street, but it's too far outside of my lunch travel circle. Astoundingly, when I took a...More

Tortuga is a small genuine taqueria with excellent food in a small, cozy environment. On top of the good food, the restaurant has good music to enjoy.

I stumbled on this place on a rainy New York afternoon, looking for somewhere to get dry. The décor is bright and colourful, full of drawings pinned to the wall (most by kids, from the looks of it). It was hard to choose what to...More

Excellent Vegan and vegetarian Mexican food with an authentic taste at a reasonable price. The owner also chooses a great selection when featuring Vegan cake for dessert!

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
