Tonight we went to La Esquina for dinner,
For those of you who do not know about the restaurant in New York, let me fill you in………………..
Back in the day it used to be “The Place to Be”, with entry only possible once you have proven you know the right people and even then with a long wait.
It’s a regular taco stand to the unsuspecting passer-by, but to those in the know, it’s a clandestine restaurant hidden in the basement behind a grey door. Once you go down the stairs it is necessary to pass through the kitchen and into the dark restaurant.
The menu is modern Mexican with a few unique touches, but for the most part it is pretty standard Mexican.
Unfortunately it is now very touristic and has suffered the same fate of those restaurants that used to be the fashionable place and are now surviving on that “Used to be” reputation. The food was good, but not spectacular and unfortunately nothing memorable enough to write about.
If you are up for a tourist attraction it’s worth a visit, but if you are looking for a gastronomic experience………………… Eat elsewhere.
