My son, who lives in lower Manhattan, is looking for a
good Mexican restaurant. Any suggestions?
re: pat hammond
I agree on Gabriela's. Not everything is great, but
it is a very good place on the whole.
Downtown, on Greenwich St. in the Village, there is
Taqueria de Mexico, where I had a very good and
reasonable meal a few months ago -- pork in green
mole, mixiotes (chicken in red chile and beer in
parchment). The mole was esp. good , the sauce came
together well, and did not have the raw pumpkin seed
taste it sometimes has. For appetizer, we had tacos
al pastor (treyfe mexican style shawarma) which were
nice, but could not hold a candle to La Espiga's in
A few blocks away is slightly more upscale Mi Cocina,
but i haven't been there in about 6 years, so can't
really recommend it.
