Dos Caminos Third Avenue

Steve Hanson’s empire spans the cuisine globe (Asian, Italian, etc.), but Mexican food seems best suited to his way of making a fiesta out of a meal. The kitchen cranks out freshly mashed guacamole, gets everyone lubed up on strong margaritas, then teases appetites with spicy little shredded-pork tacos on warm tortillas.

This Dos Caminos location is my favorite of the three that I've been to; the space is much larger and more open, the bar area is nicer, and the ambiance is overall better at this location. Great food, good drinks, nice service. With super pricey restaurants around, this place is a bit of a departure (though still expensive, not as expensive as others!).

With all the restaurant options in this city (especially Mexican), this one falls flat. It's fine but pretty overpriced for what you get. I did like the varied appetizer/small plates options but would rather go to Javelina any day.

Manhattan is a sea of Mexican restaurants, but if you really want quality food and a lively atmosphere, go to Dos Caminos. Start with the made to order guacamole and chips or the heavenly chorizo fundido, washed down with one of their potent margaritas, of course. The herb roasted chicken served with avocado salsa and Mexican brown rice is another great choice. If you are craving some veggies, order the vegetable tacos made up of butternut squash, pinto beans, grilled avocado, salsa verde, with quinoa tortillas on the side. You cannot leave there however, without out trying the skillet poblano corn bread. It is a life changing experience.
