About

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

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!
