Barrio Chino

253 Broome St. New York, NY 10002 | Lower East Side | 212-228-6710

Location Description:

Getting a seat at this cute little Lower East Side spot can sometimes be difficult, but don't worry, it's worth the wait. Step in and you'll understand why it's so popular with dates: it¹s cozy, dimly lit and flowing with good booze. Exposed brick, thick wooden tables, paintings and hanging paper lanterns give the place a homey, intimate feel. Don't expect some kind of fusion cuisine--the name actually refers to the fact that the restaurant borders both a Latino and Chinese neighborhood. The food is upscale Mexican, with dishes like mole enchiladas, grilled ahi tuna with spicy mango pico de gallo, and tacos stuffed with ingredients like citrus-marinated tilapia and calamari. The bar features a huge selection of tequilas and small-batch mezcals, available in cocktails or straight-up with a sangrita chaser. The downtown crowd also indulges in margaritas, sangria and other Latin American specialty cocktails.—Keith Wagstaff
