Born out of a love for the neighborhood, Mexican food and agave spirits, Añejo was launched in Hell’s Kitchen in early 2012. Here you’ll find what is quite possibly the most eclectic selections of tequilas, mezcals, and Mexican distillations this side of the Hudson. An assortment that perfectly complements each and every dish on the inspired menu. All served in a warm, inviting, authentically artistic environment.

Come for a drink.
Come for what’s cooking.
Come experience Añejo.

Original takes on traditional tastes.

There were two bartenders and one was very pleasant. The other one was fine although not as attentive but that wasn’t a big deal to us. The restaurant was incredibly loud but probably wouldn’t have been an issue for us if we had not been so hungover haha.

Great food. Guacamole had a bit of a “kick” and duck carnitas enchiladas were flavorful and cooked perfectly. Big portion. Sitting outside was comfortable.

My friend and I went to Anejo to celebrate her birthday! It is much smaller than I expected but that makes it more intimate. We ate inside which is nicely decorated with low lighting and had sanitizers on every table. There were a lot of cute areas to eat outdoors it was just too chilly for us. They checked our vaccine cards/IDs upon arrival and were quick to take our order. The food was good and you definitely get a lot for what you are paying which is good.

I’ve been going to Anejo for years now, I live right across the street. It used to be one of my favorite places in the neighborhood for brunch and dinner. Over the last couple of years I’ve seen a steady decline in the quality of food, a major decrease in the size of the portions and a noticeable increase in the prices for what you get. I understand that we are just coming out of a major pandemic but for that reason more than any other you should get better value for your dollar.

The ambiance was really fun and the waitstaff was great! As a lover of corn chips, our party of 4 did not love the chips!! They were puffy and greasy. The tacos were great and my salad was yummy! I ordered the tuna ceviche and sadly it was frozen which was a bummer so sent it back. All in all would prob not go back because of the food :/

We were late for our reservation (we did call to inform the restaurant that we were running late) and they were very accommodating. Our server was very attentive and the food was delicious. I look forward to a return visit.

Went for a birthday brunch and had a great time. The atmosphere was nice. The brunch special was so good, especially the coconut flavored French toast with fresh strawberries and blueberries. Our waiter was very attentive and our food arrived to our table fairly quickly and hot. The mimosa was also very good. I would definitely return for brunch as well as for dinner. Anejo is a really nice spot. I like it a lot.

Small, crowded restaurant loud and dimly lit. Even though we had a reservation there wasn’t a table for us indoors. We were offered a table outside that we declined. Luckily a table opened up and we were seated. We ordered their signature Margaritas and they were small and watered down. We ordered another house favorite, the Octopus, was hard as leather and the smallest I’ve ever been served. The meal, restaurant and service were mediocre at best, and this is nothing more than a “local dive” and shouldn’t show up on anyone’s recommended restaurant list for NYC.

Our second experience was very different from our first which was only a week ago.

The drinks were made not as requested but was made whole. One of them did not taste as good as I had the last time.

The food was not as tasty on both the carne asada and the duck Carnetos. In fact I had experienced bad stomach cramps that I rarely ever get.

All in all, it was a disappointment, hopefully an off night for this restaurant.

We ate outside-the inside is a little tight and noisy. Food is great, go for happy hour as it can be pricey. Happy hour has good deals.

A great place to have dinner with a friend. Had restaurant week menu with mushroom quesadilla as appetizer and delicious duck enchiladas as main. Coconut Dessert was a bit underwhelming. But overall a very enjoyable experience.

Well for one… partitions are not consistent in this establishment when separating the tables… secondly the music… it was on and off and then no music at all. They would play a great song and then silence. For at least 10 min at a time which takes away from the ambiance. Thirdly I originally wanted the pork belly which they said was “sold out” at 330 in the afternoon? I then wanted the octopus which was also sold out. I settled for the duck which was horrible. We didn’t even eat it but also didn’t bother to complain due to not much on the menu to order from. Only positive was the short rib tacos and the fish tacos were REALLY good. Ordered margaritas but the amount was less than standard at $15-$16 a glass

Hi Bluevirgo, I want to thank you for visiting Anejo. We apologize for the music cutting out, the cable company’s hardware on the building was damaged which affected our internet. It’s since been fixed. With the increase in business and shortage of kitchen staff, time for prepping for Some food items have been affected. We’ve address these issues. And hope you’ll return in the furture for a better experience. Again thank you and hope to see you soon! Management

We wanted to be seated inside as was our reservation, and this took quite some time and consternation. We were informed the drinks were only bottomless for 75 minutes, even though the menu says 90.
