Lower East Side, Italian or Mexican, Casual

pooky Aug 7, 2009 09:41 AM

I am looking for a few restaurant on the lower east side, casual and either mexican or italian. I recently ate at Max on Avenue B and love it! Something along those lines (not expensive, casual) would be perfect. Also, if they have outdoor eating like at Max that would be a bonus! Thanks for your help!

    I love the beer battered fish tacos at Mercato. They remind me of authentic Baja style tacos you get in East LA. Very good!

      Mole is my favorite Mexican spot, and is located in the LES on Allen btw Stanton and Houston. Real good.
