Well, it took me almost 3 years, but I've finally found my favorite Mexican restaurant in the city. Locals, have you been to Toloache? If you haven't, I suggest you email me and we'll meet up there asap for a guacamole trio and a margarita! It is AMAZING!
"A" can order it on seamless web so we had tried their fish tacos many times and they are my favorite in the city. We finally went there last Saturday evening and it was even better in person. We started with the guacamole trio: a fruit guac, a spicy guac, and their regular guac and one of the best margaritas I've ever had. We split the lobster tacos and the shrimp quesadilla. They were both heavenly. For dessert, I got the churros with caramel and chocolate dipping sauces and "A" got the tres leches. The service was fantastic (we were even offered a tequila shot to celebrate with a bachelorette party seated next to us.) The whole meal was an A plus and I can't wait to go back!
If you are planning a trip to NYC and want to have a fun drink in Times Square or a little Mexican fiesta before your Broadway show, this is the place to go! After you have conquered Toloache, be sure to check out their other restaurants: Yerba Buena and Yerba Buena-Perry
My honorable mentions go to:
1) Rosa Mexicano for their pomegranate margaritas, table-side guacamole and flautas
2) Mercadito for their spicy margaritas and fish tacos
3) Dos Caminos for their guacamole and margaritas
4) Cilantro for quickly delivering me chicken and blue corn enchiladas and the best salsa ever and good guacamole (almost weekly)
5) Blockheads for a quick and easy fix
