Welcome to Toloache (pronounced toh-lo-AH-tchay), chef-owner Julian Medina's contemporary Mexican bistro located in the Upper East Side. Toloache is named after a flowering plant famed in Mexico for its use in love potions. We hope that when you dine with us you too will fall under the spell of chef Medina's creative cooking, which incorporates seasonal and natural ingredients and more than a dozen types of chilies. Along with the authentic Mexican menu and an exceptional tequila list, we offer elegant decorative elements imported from Mexico. We look forward to seeing you soon.

    Great neighborhood Mexican. Unfortunately, very loud! Next time, weather permitting, will try the outdoor space.

    First time Back in many years. It did not disappoint as far as food, service and friendly atmosphere. Unfortunately we made a last minute reservation and could only get a table in the street shed. Kind of tight and very loud. That was outweighed by everything else about the evening. We’ll be back and plan earlier in order to get a table With more ambiance.

    Service was very slow and seating was totally cramped and uncomfortable. Pity because staff was very friendly and food was good.

    One of the two top bar seating for full dinner and a great cocktail experience in the upper East side. Danny does a great job managing and the staff is smart and remembers patterns and makes it feel like a community.
