It is widely known that NYC is one of the best places in the world to find great dining in almost every culinary genre. No matter what type of food you like, you can find both world-class restaurants that cater to tourists as well as many local favorites. If Mexican cuisine is among your favorites, there is no shortage of great dining opportunities near your Times Square hotel. While we will focus on a few here, you can always find many more by either talking to the locals or going a little out of your way.
Toloache: While this is among the best known of any and all Times Square restaurants, there is good reason for this. Among the featured restaurants in the NYC restaurant week, this upscale restaurant features some of the best Mexican and Latin cuisine in the world. This fine dining opportunity is easily within walking distance from Times Square but make reservations well ahead of time.
Ta Cocina: This favorite of locals near Hell’s Kitchen is fantastic for those looking for a more relaxed and fun atmosphere. The staff is quite friendly and the Margaritas are simply fabulous. The price will not dig too deep in your budget, as the prices are quite friendly. Take a longer walk or short ride from your Times Square hotel on this one as it is well worth the visit.
Iguana: This is the place to be if you are single or do not have the kids with you. Not only do they have awesome food, the action is non-stop. They offer a wide variety of Mexican, Latin and Tex-Mex as well as salsa lessons and the nightclub atmosphere that really kicks into high gear on Friday nights. The fact that it is so close to Times Square does not hurt either as you can easily walk to the location.
