“Mexican fusion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Service was ok. Food was excellent. Atmosphere was ok. Definitely a twist on traditional Mexican food. However, nothing to be scared about as everything I tasted blended well together. I would come back to this place if in the area.

“One of the best brunches in NYC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

This is an exceptional neighborhood Latin/Mexican restaurant. It is in Woodside, beside the elevated tracks of the 7 train, near 52nd St station, about 20-30 minutes ride from midtown. It's not quite standard Mexican, but more a thoughtful and satisfying assimilation of Mexican influence and chefly technique. Consider coming here for their breakfasts in particular. The Puebla breakfast is one of the best brunch treats in the whole city.

For visitors, it's an experience of an older cinematic New York as well. The trains clatter by on the elevated line that runs down the center of the street, which is lined with a range of little ethnic eateries. If you want pictures of something other than the standard tourist sights, come here and do yourself a favor.

“Our best meals in NYC!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

Love this little cafe!! Lovely atmosphere, live music, delicious menu, affordable pricing and great service!! The portobello mushroom salad was my best meal in NYC by far!! Only a very short walk from the Woodside Quality Inn on Queens Blvd and adjacent Subway line 7, station 52nd/Lincoln St. We dined here a few nights during our NYC holiday and every meal has been super impressive. Live music from 7pm. Great location. You won't be disappointed.

“Delicious late night desserts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

If you are staying at the nearby Quality Inn Woodside, one block south, and did not dessert after dinner in the city, La Flor will lure you in. This is a perfect spot for your coffee and dessert. Delicious chocolate mousse. Live music night we stopped. Neat place, right there in your hotel neighborhood.

“Sets a very high standard”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2012

This chef-owner run restaurant is z gem. Viko was trained as a baker and his baked goods are really wonderful, but you have to earn them by eating an entree from his great menu. The cuisine is schizo - part Mexican down home - tacos, moles etc - and part his own take on nouvelle American/Continental. Both are really good - well prepared, fresh ingredients (the cilantro zings out of the Latin selections).

Hint - go and look at the display case before you order, to get an idea of desserts and salads and sides. BYOB.
