Both the food and service here were excellent. Large gluten free selection too! Between the four of us we had fish, chicken, steak and carnitas tacos - all great. And their chips were awesome! Highly recommend.

Dorado is a small eat-in or take out taco and quesadilla restaurant with fast, friendly, and reliable service. The food is excellent and consistent. They also have beer and a perfect fruit-infused Sangria. I eat here once a week and have never been disappointed.

If you want good food and a quick bite, this is the place to go. I always come for their fish tacos, particularly their grilled mahi mahi fish. It has a grilled taste that I love. It is spiced perfectly and the cabbage, tomatillo and...More

A really nice and cozy place, the fish tacos are amazing - whenever I have time, I would walk for 15 blocks to get there. A counter service, wooden tables - nothing fancy, but so tasty and friendly!

Found this when we googled "gluten free places near Union Square" and were shocked that it wasn't absolutely packed with people. Perfect for gluten free people who normally feel denied when eating out, and would especially recommend the tuna taco as the salsa is amazing!...More

A great casual lunch option near the downtown, close to the Union Square Park and station. These are one of the best Quesadillas I ever had, and the staff is extremely friendly. The place is small, sometimes crowded, just reminder of the fact that this...More

Consistently fresh and tasty tacos!!! I've tried several kinds, and they're all excellent, including my favorite, the various fish tacos. I also enjoy the cheese quesadilla, but the tacos are the star. This is somewhat small spot, so don't bank on a table, but I've...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
