About the restaurant
Mexico Lindo is one of the oldest Mexican restaurants in New York City. The family owned and operated establishment opened its doors in May of 1972. The dishes at Mexico Lindo are local, seasonal and inspired by the home-cooked meals one would eat growing up outside of Mexico City.

Try one of the restaurant’s signature house specials, which include mole poblano, shrimp enchiladas, grilled steak tacos. In the summer, Mexico Lindo celebrates the zucchini squash blossoms with a handmade corn masa quesadilla & bicolor corn esquites.

Really outstanding food and service and service. We had the guac with corn, steak fajitas and the fish. On the fish, they substituted delicious veggies for the rice, as we requested.i don't think you can be disappointed here. P.S. Try the white sangria.

About the restaurant
Our Story The goal – to guarantee a wonderful meal with authentic cuisine and fabulous margaritas, serve over 50 artisanal and ancestral mezcals, and over 100 different types of tequila brands in a vibrant unique atmosphere that boasts excellent service. Ruta Oaxaca Mexican Cuisine opened in Astoria in 2021 with such a wonderful and successful home run that a second location opened in Patchogue in March 2022. Ruta Oaxaca means “Road to Oaxaca,” a historic state in the southern part of Mexico. Mr. Castillo and his Partners are keenly focused on honoring Oaxacan culinary traditions, whose fame is derived in great part from its many varieties of moles. By legend, these ancient recipes are more than sauces, they are the very focus of the meal. Ruta Oaxaca proudly features four moles, each prepared using the Oaxacan mole recipes that have made the cuisine world famous.

We did brunch with friends. Fantastic food, drinks and service! Our waiter (Andrew) was very attentive and a friendly host. Live DJ is a nice touch for brunches but volume could be a bit lower. All in all, highly recommended!

About the restaurant
A rustic new tequileria y restaurante in Tribeca that owes its soul to Mexico. 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 created by chef Ricardo Camacho. All served in a warm, inviting, authentically artistic environment. Original takes on traditional tastes.

Please note that a reservation guarantees a table but not a location. Please call ahead for preferred seating & we will do our best to accommodate.

Same day reservations please call the restaurant directly. We will fit you in.

***Larger parties are welcome. Please call for availability. Chances are we can accommodate.***
