The team behind Pan-Asian restaurant Shi in Long Island City opens a casual Mexican bar and restaurant across the street. The rustic 65-seat space features orange walls, terra-cotta-tiled floors and a bar crafted from wood tequila barrels. Dig into enchiladas, fajitas, tacos and ceviches. To drink, choose from creative cocktails, such as the Bitter Mayan (Ron Zacapa 23, orange bitters) and Mexican Milkshake (Don Julio Añejo, Bailey's, Kahlúa).
