Toloache (New York City, NY)

Restaurant: Tol8-toloache_650oacheย 

Location:ย NYC, Theater District

Style: Fine dining Mexican restaurant.

Price: $$$$ (Very Expensive)

Food: The food overall was excellent. We ordered for an appetizer the avocado fries with a jam dipping sauce which were delicious. For dinner we had the Pollo Toloache which is Chipolata-marinated chicken breast a la plancha, pinto bean dumpling, and sweet corn-pico de gallo. And we also ordered the Lechon Prensado which is suckling pig carnitas, corn pudding, roasted Oaxacan chiles-tomato salsa, and chayote en vinagre. For dessert we had the tasting sampler which included very small tastings of Pastel de Chocolate, Flan, Apple Tart, and Mango Tres Leches. These were great but for the price of $19, the servings were too small. So we decided to also get the Churros, which to our delight, were just perfect.

Atmosphere: Dimmed lights, formal casual attire, friendly service. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, but felt a little cramped as all the tables were close to each other.

Recommend?ย  We certainly enjoyed our stay and would visit again. If you can dish out the price, and call days in advance to book a table, the experience is worth it.
