(#1 train - Cathedral Parkway or Columbia Univ. 116th Street stops)
WHERE: A stretch of Manhattan's Broadway has blossomed into a destination for accessible price point eateries including the festive....and filled even on a Monday night-Mexican/Cowboy aka MEX-I and QUE themed AMIGOS Restaurant. Makes sense to us- the locale...near St. John the Divine, Riverside Church, Grant's Tomb and Columbia University...
|be impressed-list of tequilas = all inclusive...between those offerings and soccer broadcasts---many happy patrons|
|crisp chips and chunky salsa|
|frozen margaritas MEX-I side of the menu- in several flavors-including mango---Happy Hour specials every night too|
We appreciated the pace-drinks and complimentary salsa and chips- came straight away...and rest of the meal- well timed-which left time to chat- never feeling rushed to turn-over the table for the next set of patrons-which happens a lot at other inexpensive spots.
|some of the bold artwork -Mexican inspired|
|the right amount of mustard/ mayonnaise...dusting of paprika-Deviled Eggs $6|
|home-made guacamole...chunky avocados, , peppers, lime juice, spices=perfection. Regular portion $9 but there is a large feed 3 flavors guacamole trio $17 a crowd size too.|
The chopped salad-pictured with queso oaxaca cheese, avocado slices, freshly shredded greens/iceberg lettuce, chopped cucumbers, onions +tomatoes-crispy strips of tortilla chips ($12) and an extra grilled shrimp ($6) -was super fresh, tangy dressed (not saturated either-just right amount of lime vinagrette) and large enough to be an entree. Terrific.
