If we are in the mood for Mexican or Southwestern food we go regularly here. It’s a neighborhood bar and almost always full with diminish room in the back. Not fancy but always reliable food and drinks. Delicious soups and Fajitas!

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,
