“Get the chorizzo fundito and thank us later. Wash it down with a margarita, tequila or cocktail of your choice. Lots of menu options with classic and creative Mexican fusion faire. Around 9:00 on weekends the bar is hopping as they have live solo or duet performers usually singing & playing country or Mexican inspired music. Take a walk around town after dinner to see what else is happening! Or come for brunch - you can't go wrong with their huevos rancheros.”

“A tiny restaurant with big, bold, flavorful Mexican cuisine the way it's meant to be served. And eaten. Parking may be a problem but the walk up and down Water Street is a great introduction to the "Borough".”

“Brunch. Always call ahead and make a reservation or you will be waiting in a line out the door! Fresh popovers on Sunday morning are usually sold out by 10am. The kitchen is magic. The specials are always good - especially seafood. They also are phenomenal for lunch or dinner. Great wine selection. Top notch favorite place. Street parking can be tricky so give yourself some time to find a spot or there is a public lot down the side street - look for signs.”
