We stopped here for a few drinks and some chips & salsa in between bars. While the bartender was incredibly friendly, it was a letdown for several reasons. The beer was very very warm. I ordered their version of a tequila sunrise, which tasted and looked like it was 90% grenadine. But that drink was cold. I saw some of... More

We chose this place over the myriad Mexican places on 9th because the waitress was friendly, and it isn't trying to be overly fancy, and we made be right choice. The burritos were delicious and filling, and the self serve sauce bar was excellent. We got a pitcher of margaritas which was strong but still very nice. You will not... More

We stopped here after visiting the Intrepid Air, Sea and Space Museum. This is a nice Mexican restaurant that boasts the most healthy food in the world. That might be an overstatement, but the food and the service were very good. This is also one Mexican restaurant that doesn't overload the plate with food. Maybe that's what makes it so... More

Not really sure how to rate this place. It wasn't great but wasn't bad. I would be open to try it again, but the food really didn't wow me. The portion was average.

The food was delightful and very well seasoned.The service was warm and very friendly and the waitress Deena was exceptional. Due to circumstances we found ourselves back at this restaurant on our final night. Deena remembereed us and chatted to us... More

real authentic and you get so much food with your order. the drinks specials are great, and they have their own salsa bar, so you can mix and whip up your own salsa. the guac is great too.

We were wandering through the neighborhood without a destination in mind when we happened upon Lime Jungle. The salsa bar offered some tasty seasoning for our dishes. The portions weren't that large but fair for the price.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
