Que bueno!

For RETRO’s restaurant of the month write up, we decided to highlight a personal fav on the list of go to hotspots…

This past weekend, we went out for a birthday celebration at Toloache, considered to be one of NYC’s BEST Mexican restaurants. (Recommended by a Mexican-born friend, so you know it has to be good!)  I don’t necessarily agree that it’s the most authentic Mexican food in the city but it sure was delicious none-the-less!

For night time dinners, the place is lit by ornate light fixtures, highlighting the beautiful tile and artwork throughout the restaurant.  (see photo for a bright shot of the place). 

We started off the birthday celebrations with a refreshing glass of sangria, mojitos and a lime margarita, paired with an amazing bowl of traditional-spicy guacamole and warm toasted chips!  The owner then brought us a complimentary bowl of their smokey-spicy guacamole which was just as delicious (highly recommended).  

For dinner, we shared a few dishes including the chicken tacos, camarones, and a side of sweet plantains and fried brussels sprouts with queso fresco.  To top the night off we shared the warm and oh so decadent chocolate ice cream cake and a complimentary plate of churros con chocolate!  

Friendly staff makes the experience even better, so whether you’re looking for a lunch time spot for a business meeting in the heart of midtown Manhattan or a place to kick back and enjoy a margarita, head to Toloache!  (available on open table for easy reservation)
