Eating alone is rarely fun. I was made very welcome straight through the door and looked after superbly from then on. Food was excellent. House Margarita required a second serving. Sharp service with a very friendly owner making sure guests happy

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
