spring is almost here. for those in the mood for a refreshing margarita (and willing to pay a bit more for one), head up to Zarella's.
there's not much room at the bar, but you and a couple friends can always find some room to squeeze between some patrons to order up one of their famous margaritas for around 10 bucks each. cool and refreshing, each margarita is plenty strong and just the right blend of sweet and sourness. just two of these and you are set for the night (trust me, just ask my wife), while you munch on some of the complimentary tortilla chips and watch the restaurant patrons watch you get tipsy.
if you want cheaper margaritas, there are plenty of options elsewhere in the city (check out the LES). i am no margarita fan, but i do admit that Zarella's makes some mean ones.
