Useful information


Housed within a brick storefront across from the City College of New York, this authentic little Mexican spot is a true neighborhood gem. Its interior is simple, outfitted with wood tables, warm lighting, and a Dia de los Muertos mural. A small bar faces the white-tiled open kitchen, where cooks work the grill and press house-made corn tortillas at a steady clip.

The street food of Mexico City inspires Chef Cassandra Rhodes’ concise, well-conceived menu. Authentic tacos and antojitos pepper the carte, alongside homey creations like braised chicken salsa verde enchiladas, smothered in melted queso Oaxaca; or braised octopus tostadas, paired with mandarin salsa. Save room for irresistible churros, served with chocolate- and cinnamon-caramel sauces.
