Great, authentic Mexican food
The food here is pretty amazing; my friends from Mexico say this is THE best Mexican food in New York (an elusive quest). The only issue is we had a reservation, but we weren't seated for another 45 minutes, which we found a bit annoying. The staff was apologetic and even gave us a few things on the house, so all in all not a horrible experience.

The guacamole is delicious here but their duck enchiladas in almond mole is really superb. Service is efficient and friendly and they even had a mariachi trio performing on Cinco de Mayo!

We had a positive if unremarkable experience here. We were looking for a place in Tribeca near a party that wasn't rated "$$$$" and would easily seat a group of five. (Fit all of those criteria splendidly.)
Visited with a group of five. We had a pitcher of red sangria, then entrees for all. Mostly different kinds of tacos, someone got impressive looking duck enchiladas, one Palmitas salad. (The salad looked pretty dull, but I didn't eat it.)
Solid Mexican fare, good flavors, good wait staff.
Didn't knock my socks off, but I wouldn't protest to going back.

Solid Traditional Mexican
This is not your Tex-Mex restaurant; I immediately recognized Cochinita Pibil as being one of the traditional dishes from the Yucatan that I have made my go-to dish in many a traditional Mexican restaurant. But not today; the braised pork tostadas were really excellent. My dining partner and I got two different appetizers; we should have both gotten the same. Something about the marinade and the braising just really brought the pork to a special place. In fact, they were actually in many ways better than our mains, the rojo chicken enchiladas, and fish tacos. However, the homemade dulce de leche ice cream with homemade cajeta (two things I know a lot about from my own kitchen experience) were the perfect rebound to end the meal.

Superb authentic Mexican food
An unexpected find in SoHo. Unpretentious, excellent service and great food & unusual tequila and mescal drinks. Started with a pungent mescal, pomegranate and lime cocktail with a smoked chile powder rim. Salsas & chips excellent, as we're the enchiladas de huitlacoche in a salsa verde--perhaps the best enchiladas I've ever had. Duck enchiladas in a red sauce also extremely tasty. Would go back in a minute.y
