    The Bitches say: C+. Above average, authentic Mexican fare in a lively, intimate LES locale. We enjoyed the creativity on the brunch menu, but yearned for a touch more flavor. Leer más

    Waited 45 minutes on a Sunday morning when four other people were in here to be served seven home fries and an admittedly fantastic eggs Benedict dish.

    For brunch, get the torta with an egg on it. It's better than sex.

    El Chamuco; A mix of tequila blanco, mezcal, creme de cassis, homemade ginger beer, and lime juice. The combination is light, refreshing, complex, and smoky, all at the same time. Leer más

    Like your drink sweet and spicy? Then the Blackberry Michelada is definitely for you! Negra Modelo + blackberries + grapefruit juice + tajin + salt!

    Hidden gem of a restaurant in the LES. Hangar steak was delicious and the potatoes were next level. Cheesy amazingness. Short rib was good too and guac is a great starter. Solid cocktails.

    This place is all around great! Can't go wrong with any of the apps. My second time there I had the chicken mole dinner which was superb. Alex does an amazing job w/the variety of cocktails. 😍🇲🇽

    Ask for a side of the green salsa, made with tomatillos and Serrano chiles.

    Rigo, the bartender, makes some mean mezcal cocktails. The matador norteno was delicious.

    Cozy spot in LES. Get all the tacos (hanger steak, chicken, fish), guacamole with pomegranate, and ask the bartender to make you a custom drink.

    Sit at the bar and talk to the bartender about tequila. If you're lucky he'll do some blind tastes tests to help you find tequila that you enjoy sipping on.

    Great guacamole - highly recommend the one with pomegranate seeds. Do be warned that the restaurant is small and the service is quite slow.

    Breakfast- delicious food, large portions. A little cramped but worth the compromise.

    Queso fundido and spicy but light aguachile best. Generous guac portion for $10. Well made cocktails too but small so reserve ahead

    Solid mezcal and pulque based drinks and solid Mexican fare make this tiny bar a worthwhile visit. Guac with pomegranate seeds and crab tostada were both solid. I liked the spicy Oaxaca Express.

    Ask for the spicy tomatillo salsa. Some of the staff doesn't know it exists but it does and it's great.
