Arriba Arriba - new Mexican in Sunnyside?
Has anyone been to Arriba Arriba yet? I just picked up a menu today. Looks a little pricey for this neck of the woods, but I'm willing to give it a shot. Any reports?
if it's anything like the rest of the chain,, meh. specialty is yuppie-american "mexican" heavy on burritos and nachos, light on actual mexican food.
Ate there yesterday for brunch and we were the only two people there for a while, which is a shame. It's good. Worth the price. Had two large margaritas, roasted veggie quesadillas, huevos rancheros, and a fresh corn soup with some form of green chile in it and a pureed huitlacoche squirt. It was very moderny tho, right down to the plates.
I love the original Arriba on Nith Ave...been eating there over 25 years. Nice simple food. The Sunnyside location seems to be an attempt at "upscale" dining and is a dissapointment. The drinks are great , but the food is overworked, over garnished/sauced and overpriced. They need to get back to basics.
