Forget all the other Mexican restaurants you have been to. They are merely diners - good but hardly Michelin class. This place is truly Michelin class. Cosme's food will blow your mind and totally change your view of what Mexican food can be. We had...More

Wonderful exciting creative Mexican food, don't come here for a quiet romantic meal, lots of noise, hard to have a conversation but the food is best for sharing. Small dishes so best to order a few.

Cosme demonstrates what I have maintained for years. The best of high end Mexican cuisine rivals the complexity and sophistication of French haute cuisine. The meal was sublime. We enjoyed octopus, and squash appetizers, and the Duck Carnitas entree. Their spirits and wine options are...More

We booked this place way in advance. Didn’t receive a booking confirmation. Called for 3 days, left messages, emailed them and heard nothing back. They didn’t even tell us that their kitchen was closed for maintenance. I find this hard to believe...More like it has...More

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
which makes a good picture no matter what angle you
photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant
architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this
neighborhood is part of a historic district that was
