Nice dishes and good drink selection

We decided to have some dinner very spontanius after arriving late in NY. Even though the place was packed, we managed to get a table after a group left. The very helpful staff arranged everything. The atmosphere was buzzing. A good selection of dishes, sometimes in surprising combinations. Good... read more

I had the yuca fries and chicken and something else which I forget but it was all amazing. The plates are decent sized to share so 3 plates between 2 people are perfect for a meal. Their drink selection is great and the decor is nice. If I lived close I would be a regular!

After hitting Grit n Glory for ink we were in need of food and we happily came across Macondo. We are so happy we did. We have been looking for that elusive chill spot for great drinks and food since Boom closed a couple years back in Soho and we may have found it in the LES. Seated promptly and... More

What a refreshing pace & friendly staff. We arrived during happy hour, and were seated immediately. Great happy hour specials! The guacamole was made fresh and I mean we ordered it & they made it. For tapas, the portions were just enough for 2. I definitely recommend reservations and dining early because you will not have a crowd and will... More

I have been to this place 2 times already and the one thing that least impresses me is the seating arrangements. You are penalized for 1. not having a reservation and 2. not having a big enough party to be seating in a normal area. We were 3 people and arrived around 1 pm for brunch. There were so many...

Have only been here for brunch but enjoyed quite a few different dishes. The steak & eggs is delicious. The french toast is pretty big & ideal to share. But my favorite is their cuban sanwiches. It has just the right amount of pork, ham, cheese, garlic & pickle! We opted for the unlimited drinks & tried all of them.... More

We wanted to got to "Katz" however found the waiting line outside too long to wait in the cold. Macondo was just up the street and packed with patrons. We took a change and got a table, great atmosphere, excellent food and drinks and the service very good and quick!

I came here with a date for Sunday brunch and enjoyed it. The decor is easy on the eyes and the music playlist is awesome! The service was fast and friendly. I had the carne con yuca, which was basically skirt steak with fried egg and yuca fries. They also have an unlimited mimosa option as well for two hours... More

Amazing food and drinks! Great for groups. LOUD!!! I felt myself shouting over to my buddies less than three feet away from me! The music is great - a Latina mix and it feels like you're in a club. So, anyone with a hangover from the night prior ... beware! They have unlimited Bellini's for brunch during an hour or... More
