Lower East Side, Italian or Mexican, Casual

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!

  1. I had a good dinner at Bacaro recently.

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

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