This place is beautiful; the food quality was very good. Even though the food was expensive, it was well worth. The service was good.


Not crazy about this place. While the menu promises wonderful things, their dishes are VERY salty, bordering on unhealthy. All though the bar, provides tasty and strong drinks. As...

Chic Mex 8/18/2005

This hot spot is a great destination for sophisticated, well-prepared, inspired Mexican food. They also have killer margaritas or, if you prefer, an exceptional wine list. It's popular bar scene gives it the air of a pertpetual party and as a result it can get raucous in the evening . Don't confuse this with the local tex-mex - the ambiance is class and the food is exquisitely prepared and plated. more

  • The Scene
    The bright mix of colors painted on the cafe's walls matches the vivid margaritas that sit on nearly every table and litter the sceney bar. The strong, fruity concoctions come with punchy flavors like passion fruit, strawberry and blood orange and draw a casual but fashion-forward crowd.

    The Food
    This Chelsea favorite is known for its creative Mexican cuisine. The citrus-habanero marinated shrimp atop a mango and corn salsa could benefit from a bit more heat, but otherwise the starter pleases. From the "street food" menu, try the carnitas--the tender organic pork is complimented by tortillas and fresh guacamole--or the reliable burrito. The skillet of shrimp with papaya works as a kind of upscale fajita; its chipotle tomato puree nicely marries the caramelized papaya to the shrimp. The wild mushroom chile relleno gets overwhelmed, however, by its creamy sauce. End with tres leches, imaginatively topped with banana cream.
