    First night in NYC and we decided to have dinner here (note we did make reservations a month ahead of time).  And this place was NICE: great feel, fun drinks, and food wasn't half bad.  I especially like the Chilean Sea Bass with black bean sauce and the Toro Tartare.  The best thing was our vegan cousin had stuff on the menu she could order.  Although, I could swear she took some sea bass.

    You have to check this place out.  The atmosphere's worth it.

    see ya around NYC yelpers.

    I don't remember ever spending so much money on a sandwich, but it was so worth it.  "The Woody Allen" (lotsa corned beef and lotsa pastrami) could feed a family of four.  I originally thought I would split a sandwich and then split dessert with the wife, but I could not have been more wrong.  We did split "The Woody Allen" (which was an extra three bucks, but whatever), but I barely finished my half and the wife could only finish half of hers.  So like a trooper, I tried to finish it for her.  Bad Idea.  Sufficed to say, no dessert.  Maybe next time we're in NYC.

    take it easy NYC yelpers.

    Is this a Cuban place or not?  I was fully expecting a Cuban restaurant but the bottom of the menu clearly states the original restaurant is in Mexico.

    Well, whatever they serves is still good.  I will agree with those who rave about the corn.  The guava margarita are also really nice.  But other than those two items, there was nothing really outstanding.

    We started off with Grilled Chicken and Corn Salad.  I got the Pollo Mirador.  The wife got the Roast Pork.  And her cousin got the Enchiladas De Mole Poblano.

    Maybe I was just ordering the wrong things the whole night (see review on Veniero) because the wife's and cousin's food tasted a lot better than what I got.

    Lesson here: go with someone who knows or get a recommendation.

    Sometimes the most expensive things on the menu aren't the best things.  I got the chocolate banana cake, and it was good, but I kept expecting to be blown away . . . I expected great.

    Although, I may be partially to blame since I should have gone with something simple like a chocolate cannoli (which I saw someone else having as we left).  Or maybe I should have also ordered stuff to go.

    All that being said, I'd still recommend checking the place out.  It still resounds of "a NYC thing to do."  I'll go back there next time I'm in town and hopefully give a fuller report.

You've heard of A Hundred Years of Solitude right?  That book was epic.  It's so insightful and deep and amazing.  And the writing . . . wow.  My only wish is that I were able to read it in its original Spanish.  Oh well . . . so what does have to do with this list?  Nothing really.  Below you'll find a hundred or so reviews (for better or worse).
