Best Mexican thus far on the upper east! Toloache

Had a chance to try the recently opened branch on East 82. Vibrant crowd, great waitstaff and delicious food. Not your typical boring Mexican but innovative upscale apps and entrees. Very popular from what I experience so make reservations!

  1. +1. Ate there Friday. Had a 9:00 rez, ended up eating at the bar at 9:30. Food was great, staff very good and the crowd... mixed. Nice people to my left, decent people I got the seats from but a bunch of the worst UES caricatures to my right... (dressed poorly for their ages, talking too loud, drunk, classless.... uggghhh)

    1. Julian knows how to cook. The UES was desperately in need of some good Mexican spots, aside from the simpler taco joints uptown.
