Hell's Kitchen

You might expect a Mexican place invoking hell in its name to deliver some strong heat, but the approach is more sophisticated here. Your introduction is a complimentary steaming crock of black beans, corn and cilantro drizzled with a creamy poblano sauce. It’s perfect as a dip for thin triangles of sweet corn bread. Plantain empanadas filled with goat cheese swim in a pool of tomato coulis. Entrées are sauced up too: Try the ancho-crusted tuna and yucca cake with smoky peanut sauce. Reservations are recommended; scoring a pretheater table without a wait is about as likely as hell freezing over. That may be moot, since at press time a move was being planned.

Hell’s Kitchen is a super fun Mexican restaurant in you guessed it, Hell’s Kitchen! They have been serving up fabulous Mexican fare and drinks for seventeen years. The décor is heavily influenced on the Mexican holiday Dia de los Muertos. Start with the killer guacamole trio which includes a traditional guacamole, a spicy one with chipotle puree, and one with grilled pineapple. They also have fantastic salads, tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and fajitas. The margaritas are quite strong but delicious. Try the mango, classic or if you are brave, the devil’s nightcap with habanero infused tequila, lychee puree and lime juice.
