Mexican in Hell's Kitchen/Times Square area

  • t

Anyone know of any excellent mexican restaurants in the Hell's Kitchen/Times Square area? Looking for a nice sit-down place that will also have vegetarian dishes.

  1. Try the namesake of one of those nabes, Hell's Kitchen. It's a pretty cool/classy spot on 9th betw. 46/47. They've got an interesting,loose approach to authentic Mexican and are unafraid to play around with unconventional combos. Chef used to run the kitchen at Rocking Horse in Chelsea.

      Hell's Kitchen is good (but I think Rocking Horse is still better) Good, and pretty affordable, is Arribe Arribe, at 9th and 51st. The Crepas de Camarones are really good. This is absolutely a neighborhood place. They are not even listed in the Zagat guide, and have been around for years.
