Manhattan – Lower East Side
205 Allen St between Houston and Stanton Sts
Manhattan, NY 10002
This downtown eatery successfully walks the line between haute Mexican and low-end burrito parlor. Yellow walls and Talavera tiles dress up the tiny space, and the kitchen"s efforts to reach higher is evidenced by the vivid flavors, thoughtful presentation--and elevated pricing (a small guac costs $9). The namesake smoky mole poblano coats a juicy half chicken, and warm crêpes with whipped cream are an elegant end to the meal--even if the experience is a little rushed.
