Brave bugged-out snacks like the tlayuda con chapulines ($14). Crispy, chili-spiced grasshoppers smother a toasted tortilla, punctuated with cooling dollops of queso de rancho and avocado cream. And insects don’t stop at the plate: the salt rim of the sweet-corn-and-tequila Yum Kaax ($12) hints at chipotle, but ask the bartender, and you’ll learn that smoky bite actually comes from grated ants and Maguey worms. Those averse to Timon and Pumbaa–style feasting can opt for pest-free plates like punchy papaya ceviche de jurel ($13) with yellowtail tuna, blanched sea beans and minced serrano peppers, or hearty enchiladas de conejo ($24), which blankets tender braised rabbit in a velvety, tomato-chile sauce and lime-splashed figs.

Good for

A boldfaced date. Along with the daredevil bites and mescal-heavy quaffs like La Santa Hormiga (fresh cucumber, minty hoja santa leaves), the dark, moody den is a fun house of Aztec-patterned booths, black-and-white desert landscapes, bolero ballads and a rainbow-kissed Dalí-esque ant mural. If the buggy botanas don’t seal the deal for you, the caliente digs should nab you some bedroom brownie points.

The clincher

A soon-to-be-unveiled garden is home to large Terracota pots of Mexican herbs and cacti, ideal for both scenery and a fresh supply of bar garnishes. Iron tables and chairs in the ceramic-tiled patio will offer 40 extra alfresco seats on warm-weather days, so that sun-soaked southern border won’t feel a ways away.

What a nice surprise to find this mexican restaurant 2 blocks from the crazyness of New York City. Great place, great food, very tasty. Tacos are all excellent and look so good. Mexican burrito was really good as well. Strongly recommended. Thought, a bit too spicy for the children.

Lovely reasonable place to dine and not take a large hit in the pocket. Relaxed casual atmosphere with good food and service. Shrimp dishes are fine as is their guacamole.

Only discovered this place near the end our visit to NY and has a great dinner here. Place was packed so waited at the bar for a table while having frozen margaritas. Great atmosphere, vibey and friendly service. Fantastic food, great mexican flavours with all the best Mexico has to offer. Quesadillas and nachos were great! Definitely recommended!! Clear from the tone and sound inside that everyone who visits El Centro love it!
