I had family in town this past weekend & needed to find a good Mexican restaurant in Murray Hill / Gramercy that could accomodate 8 people later in the evening. Not too college-y like Blockheads, not obnoxiously expensive... something right in the middle -- but still fun. After Baby Bo's said they couldn't make reservation and turned away my business (& ultimately missed out on a rather large food & booze tab), I walked down 2nd Ave to Mexico Lindo to check out the place. I was greeted warmly, was surprised by the comfortable-yet-classy decor (white tablecloths with candles), and promptly made reservations. Later that night I arrived with family in tow & we were led directly to our table in the crowded restaurant. The service was excellent, the margaritas were strong, and the food was delicious. Even the free chips and salsa were tasty. I had the Enchiladas Especiales Mole and it was a fantastic dish! We all tasted each others meals and everything seemed to be unique in taste (not cookie-cutter Mexican tasting), wonderfully prepared, and easy on the wallet. We're not talking Chipotle prices here, but defintely not Dos Caminos either. We finished off our dinner with a variety of the coffee & liquor drinks that they offer... the Cafe Mexico Lindo was my favorite (with brandy & Kahlua). We never felt rushed, and the staff and host (/owner?) were warm and friendly. As we walked out on the sidewalk everyone complemented me on my great restaurant choice and raved about the food and margaritas. I'll definitely be back many times, and it would be a great choice for a pre-movie meal at the Kips Bay Theater. I encourage you to check this place out if you haven't before... I live down the street and it's taken me 3 years to find this. I'm definitely glad I did!
Pros: Great service, Accomodating, Delicious Food
