Best Margarita in Murray Hill

Looking for a good place to grab an after work margarita in Murray Hill on Friday - not too packed or noisy but lively! Any suggestions?

  1. I haven't been there in years, but El Rio Grande has been cranking them out for eons.

    1. I had one at Dos caminos and it was very ordinary. They are supposed to be a mexican restaurant, but the margarita was more than ordinary and expensive on top of it. I don't mind paying between 10 and 15 for a drink if it is exceptional, but this is not the case here. If you are able to take a short walk to university place around 12th street, El Cantinero almost gives them away at 4$ a pop!

      1. I like the margarita at Rodeo!

        1. Rodeo or El Rio Grande are your best bets. I would expect both to be packed and noisy after work though. You could also go to Baby Bo's Cantina further east if you prefer somewhere quieter. Not as fun for after work. Dos Caminos is a waste IMHO.

          1. El Parador!!! on 34th St and 2nd Ave I think. Would likely be a mellower crowd so you may not prefer.
