Mexican

I've eaten at Toloache and it was good - small dishes, pricy but food was good.
Has anyone eaten at Pampano? I'm considering another mexican place for dinner - any recommendations would be appreciated.

  1. If you liked Toloache, you might enjoy Empellon. I haven't tried Pampano yet.

      I just looked Empellon up - very new. It looks good - hopefully not as pricy as Toloache. But Pampano is pricy also................

    2. You might like Heche en Dumbo. I don't think the food's quite up to Toloache's level, but it's good nonetheless.

      1. Pompano is great. Great seafood dishes, ceviche, grilled fish, etc. Pretty white room.

        1. I've only been to Pampano for lunch which I thought was fairly priced for a business crowd. The predominance of seafood sets their menu apart from other Mexican restaurants in the city and I think they do a really fine job at highlighting an otherwise underrepresented part of Mexican cookery.

          1. We've always liked El Parador for authentic Mexican and some of the best mole' sauce I have had in NYC.
