Time Out says
The El Atoradero crew had quite the year: The Bronx cheap-eats favorite got a Brooklyn sibling in early 2016, and now two of the owners of that Prospect Heights restaurant—Noah Arenstein and Josh Kaplan—branch out with this seafood-focused Mexican offshoot on the Upper East Side. The team updated the former Brother Jimmy’s BBQ space (the chain’s owner, James Goldman, is Kaplan’s cousin and a partner here) with surf-shack accessories like tiki torches, painted wooden barrels and wall-mounted marlin, and the food-and-drink menu fits the beachy theme. Dishes from Vinegar Hill House alum Juan Juarez range from bass tacos (fried with epazote cream, grilled with mango pico de gallo) and beer-steamed shrimp buckets to cheese taquitos and San Diego–style steak fries topped with carne asada, which diners can wash down with mescal punches, mai tais and margaritas by the pitcher.
