Help. Mezcal's on Fifth.

LED Feb 10, 2009 01:12 PM

I can't get out of this. Friends are dragging me to Mezcal's on Fifth Avenue.

I've only ever been to the one on Atlantic and it was awful.

So, if you had to go and had to order one thing, what would you suffer through?

    hmm, tough spot. I think i had some nacho like dish that was okay, but for the most party i remember everything drowned in cheese.

      Corona... and lots of it.

        I have been to a few birthday parties at Mezcals of various locations over the years. Stay away from anything shrimp. I would suggest the vegetable fajita's. Or load up on chips and guac. Mezcals guac is actually OK.

          I second the Corona!
          Don't mess with the margaritas... nasty mix - not fresh lime.

            i ditto that. i've been dragged there on multiple occasions. i've tried. aww well.

            i'm afraid the op is going to have to get some nachos and hit the mezcal/tequila to get through it. thats ok, after all there is no hangover with tequila....no, really! ;)

            Jesus just go to Lobo instead
            it's right nearby

            even Los Pollitos would probably do you right

              Or Barrio on 7th Ave. & 3rd. There are two Mezcals on 5th, by the way. Not that there's any real difference.

                When in the neighborhood Jesus often goes to Lobo
