Crap! You want to take your Tinder date out to dinner, but you both work in Midtown and the only places you know of are the world's largest Applebee's and the world's largest TGI Friday's.

What now? Take her to Toloache- an oasis of sorts in the restaurant desert that is Midtown Manhattan. The food is very solid, though nothing remarkable or destination worthy. The guac is definitely a highlight, and if you're feeling adventurous I also recommend the grasshopper tacos. 

The real draw here though... the drinks. Several different types of sangria to choose from, and a whole bunch of quality margs as well. Hard to go wrong with any of them, as everything is freshly made (and doesn't skimp on the booze either).

Toloache is an actually-kinda-almost-cool restaurant in an area that is severely lacking. Sadly though, if you want half priced apps ya gotta go to Applebee's.


It is a vibrant and colorful restaurant. Everything that I tried was deliciuos, someting to repeat.


Be aware of the managers having personal motives disguised as hospitality.
