Mercadito - Closed

179 Ave. B New York, NY 10009 | East Village | 212-529-6490

Location Description:

The powerful margaritas;some engagingly seasoned with hot chiles;are the obvious lure of this hideaway, but the food might make you return again and again. The appetizer of three reworked guacs is way better than it has any right to be, and the Baja fish tacos are lip-smacking. Served with delicious homemade crackers, the ceviches are good, too, but not nearly as memorable and unusual as the stuffed cactus leaves. The hokey and serene Mexican Village decor of the high-ceilinged back room is another plus.
