Local Mexican has new chef [Armonk, NY]

Doreen Feb 21, 2013 05:56 AM

We live in Armonk and Mariachi has been here for years. Recently we saw a sign "new chef" new menu. Last night we had dinner and it was really good. The new chef is a culinary graduate who has created a menu that is very authentic Mexican.....not just tacos etc. I had a chicken soup with chile and a mexican herb (pasticho)? that was very interesting. My husband had chicken with a mole sauce. Everything was freshly made....not microwaved as is the case in other places. "Johanna" has only been there a week and is very passionate and really cares about the food. Something we've been looking for for a while. Give it a shot. Great margaritas too.

    WHICH kind (of the dozens if not hundreds) of mole?

    Actual "authentic Mexican" is regional... that's what no one in Westchester ever seems to really do.

      My husband is from Armonk. His mom still lives there but we haven't been to this place in years. They used to have a great dish with pumpkin that I really liked. Maybe we will give it another try our next visit.

        That is nice to know. Hubby and I tried the restaurant about 2 years ago and didn't really like it. Food was ok and overpriced for what is was. Now theres a new chef I am game to try it again.
        Thanks for the heads up!
