Dos Caminos

In Soho... the Mahi Mahi Tacos? That's like gourmet fast food it's so good... honestly, there is no way to describe it. I also had the Plantain empenadas and lemme tell you... BR Guest restaurants? They just know what they are doing.

Vento in the heart of meatpacking is the best as well. The sauce is to die for, their meatballs are insane and their pizza is practically worth the calories. Also, "Level V" downstairs gives any other lounge a run for their money.

  1. I've only been to the Park Ave branch of Dos Caminos. I've always found it mediocre and overpriced.

    1. I too have just been to the Park Ave location and wasn't all that impressed except they had a great prickly pear margarita. My SO has been to the SoHo spot and had the same experience - so-so food that was way overpriced.

      1. I went to Park Ave and to the midtown locations and wasnt impressed with either one.

        1. i tried Vento for brunch once and thought it was mediocre.

          1. Agree with the general opinion. Way overpriced for the quality, the best part of the place (both park and soho) are the prickly pear margaritas. The freshly made guac is better at Rosa Mexicano imho.

              Fresch guacamole is the easiest thing in the entire world to make well. I give neither dos caminos nor rosa mexicano any credit for making a $12 bowl of guacamole that I can make just as well at home for $5. The rest of the food at both places is decidedly mediocre at best and with the prices they charge just not worth it.
