Came here for dinner but forgot it was restaurant week. Oh, well. We went to the location on Thompson Street.
Normally, I group most Mexican food with Italian food; just different forms of the same three or four ingredients. Nothing special. Sometimes though, I’m surprised by something that is just a little better than what you normally get with these kinds of foods. This was one of those times.
I had the prix fixe menu, which came with a quesadilla de buratta, the entrana (steak), and the flan de dulce de leche.
The quesadilla was all right, but it had this citrus-y dressing on it which made it great. The entrana was perfectly cooked steak, but what really made this dish amazing was the brussel sprouts. The steak came with these amazing tasting brussel sprout salad in some kind of seasoning and dressing. I could’ve eaten bowls of just those brussel sprouts. The flan was also great. Good texture and tasted even better with the berries.
My friend had some tacos, a margarita and Mexican corn. She said it was good, too.
Score: 8.2/10. Looking forward to coming back again.
