I lived less than a block away from Yuca Bar and from the beginning it was always a great place to brings friends for drinks. The tapas is great, especially if you're not looking for a full meal with drinks. Out of town visitors loved the constant flow of people passing by outside and around Tompkins Square Park. However when... More

I have gone three times to this bar. You have to keep in mind that this is a bar, so that means it is loud and service maybe is not that hands on. Said that, food is great. We always have tapas and some of them are big as an entrée. Our tipical order is the amazing ribs, tacos or... More

We finally had a chance to have lunch at Yuca today, after bookmarking it a really long time ago. The good: Food is nicely presented and for the most part really tasty. My husband's pancakes were quite good, my daughter had the special egg scramble in a corn arepa (hopefully I spelled that correctly) and it was definitely the best... More

Hello, Very tasty food, good drinks, very crowded. Staff was inattentive, my wife asked for water and never got it after we paid our bill, it was like we didnt exist. Still the food was great, very tasty. Shame the staff takes away from what it could be a great dining experience.

We just happened upon this place while on Avenue A desperately looking for cheap drinks and a bite to eat! We were lucky enough to be there on the day they have half priced appetizers, and boy were they delicious. We looked around at other people's plates and they also looked great. I only wish we could have gone back... More

Small and a little crowded but definitely worth it. Staff was very attentive and friendly. We had the Huevos Rancheros and the Lobster Cakes Benedict. The Lobster Cakes were covered in a pineapple-chilpolte sauce that when you took the first bite you thought "manna from heaven". My daughter and I shared and we both loved each other's dishes. This will... More

We used to live in this neighborhood and used to have brunch here almost every weekend. They have a great brunch deal which included coffee, cocktail and entree. My girlfriend was a huge fan of their Eggs Benedict which is made on a corn cake instead of an English muffin. I was a big fan of their steak and eggs.... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. They didn't take reservations, but we got there at 9:00pm and were seated right away. It was busy but not overly crowded with a fun atmosphere, and a good selection of foods from several Latin American countries. We liked the chicken taquitos!
