Good/excellent food,but "wrong" cocktail

Service and food very good. Unfortunately I ordered a "Pisco sour" (the pisco had a really weird taste!) instead of a tequila cocktail! My fault !

For the food. Wow. Just wow. The guacamole is very good. The service is very attentive as well. Never had to flag anyone down to refill my water. There was always someone refilling as soon as the cup was half way done. I do have 2 criticisms 1) The space is very small and the place tries to pack in... More

I looked forward to dining at Casa Enrique on December 13 during our New York trip. We read about the only Mexican chef with a Michelin star in Reforma (Mexico City's largest newspaper) and I sent an email via their web site and they called me back in Mexico City to confirm. It is just one stop from Grand Central... More

A question often asked is where can you find a good Mexican restaurant in New York? The answer is clear, especially if you do not want to go too far away from Midtown and that is Casa Enrique in Long Island City. The food is delicious with an authentic taste from Mexico. The balance between fancy haute cuisine and the... More

Make reservations. It is a smaller space and the night we were there several tables were being reserved. We waited for about a half an hour; we decided to wait instead of traveling to another spot and trying to get in in less time. We spent our time at the bar. The bar is a small area so most of...

This is a lovely restaurant with friendly staff and a comfortable décor. The food is very good for a local Mexican restaurant. The Chicken Mole was tasty with a nice blend of spices.

The Michelin star and word of mouth made me really curious about Casa Enrique. Glad I went - it was a very good meal. I must say there were moments during the early part of the meal when I said to myself that I really have to research more carefully the criteria of a Michelin star. The service, the drinks... More
