Hecho En Dumbo is located in New York City, New York. The cuisine is Mexican with the Spanish influence of small plate dining. The antojitos (meaning �little whims�) menu is similar to the tapas style popular in Spain. Options on this menu include tlayuda, burritas de chilorio, pescadillas and huarache de pollo.
In addition to the antojitos menu, customers can also choose off the platillos especiales menu for entr�es including pescado poe chue, carnitas michoacanas and chuleta de ternera. Tacos are also offered. Don�t worry if all the words do not make sense to you, because the Hecho En Dumbo menu clearly explains what each dish is and what it includes. Authentic Mexican ingredients such as Oaxaca cheese and tomatillo-avocado salsa make Hecho En Dumbo an experience second to none.
Took my boyfriend of 4+ years to the chef's table. It truly exceeded expectations. The cocktails were amazing. Definitely felt like we got our money's worth!
Finally a really top notch Mexican restaurant in NYC. And for $65 I think the chef's table tasting menu is a total steal given both the quality and quantity of the food. The menu was brilliantly designed and executed, every course a fascinating blend of flavors. In addition to the five courses on the menu the chef sent over several other plates all of which were also excellent. Small wine list but quite frankly you're probably better off sticking with margaritas; the Pantera Rosa is highly recommended.
Mexican cuisine tends to be under appreciated - because there's a confusion between Tex-mex and Mexican cuisine. This restaurant offers an amazing Mexican food, it feels that there's a deep understanding of each element that goes into a dish so there's a harmony when it's tasted. I believe in the philosophy of "less is more" and Hecho en Dumbo does it - perfectly. In other words, the amount of food served on each dish is perfect to enjoy the other 3 or 4 dishes from the prix menu. Last,but not least - the cocktails. The menu offers a great variety of drinks - the right amount of options to go through it and understand what goes into each cocktail. Again, the fact that they can created cocktails with spices from Mexico is amazing. Will definitely come back.
Iwent for check tabe. Found the seats to wobbly and uncomfortable. Also left smelling too much.
I found the food too experimental and way too much mole. The t4 dish I didn't even eat, had no idea what it was.
Maybe ir juat wasn't a good Mach for me
One of my favorite restaurants in the city. One my favorite meals ever. Always phenomenal. Thats all I gotta say.
Since I had made the reservation they stopped doing Chef's Tables during the week. Once they realized the error, they seated us (2) at the counter in the kitchen area and were alone almost the entire evening until they seated 4 more people. That was a little weird, but they were accommodating.
The meal was basically just a menu listing what you're going to get and they present it to you with a description, although you already know what it is. Drinks were not included, which I actually appreciated, since I wanted to go with a few different things and liked having the freedom.
The food was very good. Portions were almost too large, so a good value. I think we had more fun in the back than anywhere else. Would PROBABLY go back...
It was a great dinner! Each course was delicious the quality, taste and variety were superb. I never had Mexican food like that before it was totally different. I particularly liked the cream of corn, chile poblano zucchini soup with goat cheese. The Chef was behind the counter and engaged with us explaining the orgins of the food and techniques. The hostess was extremely attentive. The only negative was that we could not finish our meal, it was delicious but too much food for us. The positive was that we had a wonderful meal together the next night that we had taken home----unfortunately our appetite was not large enough.
I did not realize we had reserved for the Chef's table which I am usually not a fan of but my daughter and I went with it and the food was amazing. This is really a fabulous meal and deal. The food was extraordinary. It would be hard to describe the many flavors of the listed courses and also all the extra plates they give you but it is so worth it. I was puzzled by another reviewer who felt the kitchen staff was not friendly (you are sitting at a bar in the kitchen). These people are working like crazy and have no time to chat. They are serious about their craft. I spoke to them and the chef and told them how great the food was and they were all smiles. Don't miss this place.
Special courses were served between the menu's five set courses to make this a even greater find. The food was AMAZING. The price can't be beat. I highly recommend Hecho en Dumbo if you're on the fence or looking for a great prix fixe-- you won't regret it!
The menu was imaginative, the food magnificent and the delivery fresh, personalised and "above and beyond".
Highly recommend. Fantastic staff and the chefs prix fixe menu exquisite. Sit back and enjoy a meal of Mexican food with a creative twist.
The Chef's table is fantastic. This was our second time at the Chef's table for a birthday celebration. I highly recommend it for foodies. Plenty of food for your appetite!
Always fantastic, hands down the best Mexican in NYC. Great to watch the chefs do their thing while eating such delicious food.
I booked a tasting dinner at the chef's table for my husband's birthday and we could not have been more delighted.
The food was divine, each course including the chef's between course delicacies were memorable and beautifully prepared. The service was warm and attentive, the ambiance comfortable and the wine was reasonable and delicious.
The food rivaled high end, culinary stars at a remarkably fair price.
We had a perfect evening and highly recommend this experience to all who appreciate fine dining in a casual but classy environment.
We went for my husband's birthday. Five memorable courses plus three more that they threw in, which was a nice surprise. Interesting take on Mexican. Light, modern, fresh tortillas which you can watch them make,
Perhaps it was the Monday night that meant we entered an empty restaurant and had to trek across a vast floor to the back kitchen where we sat alone watching and inhaling the deep-fryer in action. We saw a lot of great Mexican street food go out but unfortunately this option meant we missed out on that and got served over-fussy fusion options instead. The best bit were the two complimentary courses thrown in by the chef who I suspect sensed our disappointment. This would be a greta place for a large group looking for well-priced Mexican food a cut above the usual taco joint.
My husband and I were the only ones at Chef's Table that night, yet the chef didn't even come over to say hi. She just stood as far away from us as possible and chatted with the host and waiters. All the sous chefs wouldn't even look us in the eye, much less talk to us. The food was great, so next time I guess we'll sit in the dining room so we feel a little less ignored. Such a weird experience!
Probably the best, most low-key, most inexpensive world-class tasting menu you can get in New York today. This is not a modernist cook trying to wow you with obscurity but dish after dish (with bonus dishes) of incredibly flavorful Mexican dishes that will remind you that the food we all love has flavors, textures, ingredients, and imagination well beyond what you can get at Chipotle.
My wife and I loved the tasting menu at Chef's Table. Consistently delicious -- my favorite was probably the sweetbreads brought out between courses. It was a fantastic experience to enjoy Mexican food with of this quality. Excellent, creative margaritas as well.
This was a fantastic meal and experience from start to finish!
