West Village
The molcajetes adorning each table hint at this colorful cantina's specialty—guacamole made tableside. You'll also find composed plates, like a lamb shank with a spiced red-wine reduction, and grilled Black Angus steak accompanied by goat-cheese quesadillas. To drink, there are more than 200 tequilas, ranging from the familiar (Herradura, Don Julio) to rarer selections (Milagro, Chinaco). If sipping spirits aren't your thing, opt for one of the house cocktails, like the El Diablito, which mixes reposado tequila and Cointreau with fresh blood-orange and lime juices.
