El Sombrero

108 Stanton St
Manhattan, NY 10002
Lower East Side


A downtown institution—once infamous for its now-discontinued “margaritas to go”—El Sombrero (known as “The Hat” to regulars) has been serving the same affordable, no-frills Mexican cuisine to hungry Lower East Siders for a quarter of a century. The massive quesadillas and burritos, overflowing plates of beans and rice, and late business hours (they stay open until roughly 3am) make it a favorite spot for locals to end a long night out.
