Came here for 5 years when it was Lybanne it is now called Margarita Saloon and it went from French middle eastern to Mexican. Same ownership. Tried all their new Mexican dishes. Delicious. Great happy hour 4-7. Friendly and great location. Heart of Midtown.

We went there pre-theatre which was a good choice. Appetizer of Briouates which were triangles of phyllo filled with pistachio goat cheese and served with honey. They were delicious, but so very tiny (you could pop an entire one in your mouth) and filled with...More

In a town full of fantastic ethnic foods, this one is just average. It is a combination of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Food. Nothing bad, nothing outstanding. My friend loved the mussels, i had the mixed grill and all items were over cooked.

Hell's Kitchen
Just a few strides from the pulsing beat of Times
Square, Hell’s Kitchen has a much more local pulse
than its buzzing neighbor. The low-key vibe is part of
the appeal, but there’s also a new energy arriving in
the neighborhood in the form of modern residential
buildings with new retail and food shops. Ninth Avenue
is lined with restaurants of all types, from tiny Thai
hangouts and Italian trattorias to French bistros and
