La Esquina

114 Kenmare St.
Manhattan, NY 10012


La Esquina is a downtown hotspot that’s one thing upstairs and an entirely different thing downstairs. On street level, guests can chow down on fish and chicken tacos in a casual diner setting. For those seeking the secret-society vibe, check out the dungeon-like lower level, where the tequila flows, the dishes are delicious and the scene is hot. You’ll need to either book a reservation weeks (maybe months) in advance, or know someone who knows someone who knows someone.
