La Esquina – New York City
Don’t be scared. I’m not trying to food posion you and send you over to a creapy diner. La Esquina is probably the best Mexican restaurant of the city. Especially when it comes to the margaritas and the atmosphere.
La Esquina is the perfect spot to go for a margarita or for a mexican dinner in a cosy, mysterious and unusual environment. Entering the restaurant and bar of La Esquina is via the take-out corner. Tell the security guy you come for the restaurant and they let you in to go downstairs, via a dark hallway and through the kitchen to the hidden restaurant. Even before your first margarita you have a surreal experience.
Food is very authentic: quesadillas, tostados, taquitos and grilled fish & meat. The idea at La Esquina is shared dining. Perfect meal to enjoy nice bites, refreshing drinks and meanwhile catch up with your friends while sitting in a cellar in the middle of Soho. Other glamorous people that were spotted at the mexican place are Jay Z, Jennifer Anniston and Robbert Pattinson. This place could be packed so if you want to be sure of a table make sure you make reservations. Otherwise you might have to wait for a bit at the bar.
