El Parador Café was founded in 1959, and is the oldest Mexican restaurant in New York City. The restaurant has been lauded for its margaritas and ceviche. El Parador is dedicated to culture, care and hospitality. Many longtime customers first met each other at the restaurant and, over the years, have held their most intimate gatherings there. The restaurant was recently named the number one Mexican restaurant in NYC by OpenTable diners, and has been awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand five years running.
