Thanks again everyone for your enthusiastic participation and great answers! Until next week…
Q: WHO MAKES YOUR FAVORITE MARGARITA IN TOWN?
We’d love to know how you like your margarita (frozen or on the rocks). And if you know of any places with good pitchers of frozen margaritas, please throw that in too (optional)!
Kyotofu specializes in crafting delectable dessert and baked goods, many of which use soymilk made to Kyotofu’s specifications. The Kyotofu Original Tofu is one of our favorites!
Starting next month, Kyotofu will start selling their homemade desserts online. Even if you don’t live in the City, no worries, as goods are shipped nationwide.
While Cravings has been on a summer drinks kick lately, Kyotofu is offering a variety of fun summer cocktails like Yuzu Kumquat Caipirinha, Strawberry Shiso Mojito, and the Waku Waku — a mixture of fresh watermelon, cherry purée and white shochu. Yum!
Definitely Rosa Mexicano. Need I say more?
damn, jun, that’s exactly what i was going to say! pomegranate margaritas at rosa mexicano…get some freshly made guac with that and you’re all set.
Tortilla Flats – because you can specify what kind of Tequila you want. The expensive Tequila offers a good buzz!
sad to say, but i have not yet had a margarita in nyc. but at least now i have a mission (and some excellent guidance. . . that pomegranate margarita does it for me).
El Parador makes a great margarita. They also make yummy tamarind margaritas.
I had a really good margarita at the pegu club once, so I guess I would nominate them.
since you’re on a summer drink fest, how about launching drinking fridays as well?
I just think that someone has to name something else than a Mexican bar/restaurant. I had no idea Mexican rest. could make (good) margaritas!! Ok, I should stop b****ing now…I found Rodeo Bar on 3rd Ave@28th St. quite refreshing, not usual NY scene, at all! Their margaritas are big and good. I had more than 1, this must mean they are good… The ambiance and decor (cows, leather, etc.) are quite fun too! If you see typos or misspellings, I apologize; I’m not dumb but simply not from this country.
Another vote for Rosa Mexicano. A silver coin: Patron Silver and Cointreau, straight up.
The best margaritas can be found at PACIFICO in Cobble Hill. Who knew NYers could get so close to Mexico on the F train?
Maria’s Mexican Bistro on Union off 4th Ave. in Park Slope
Mexican Radio shakes up a fine margarita on the rocks. Be sure to ask for a salt rimmed glass from John the bartender. Once you get started, it’s hard to stop!
Well, this is another Mexican restaurant (sorry, they seem to have the market cornered on this one) but I have got to throw Mama Mexico on the UWS (Broadway & 103rd) in the ring. Variety of flavors offers something for everyone and taste is consistently delish.
Definitely Prickly Pear margaritas from Dos Caminos!
Frozen, please. I’ll vote for Maya, although I much prefer their sister restaurant in Denver.
I vote that all three Dos Caminos make the best and tastiest passion fruit margaritas – fresh on the rocks.
Frozen margaritas at Gabriela’s are the way to go!
For the classic — lime, triple sec, tequila — Papatzul’s are nearly perfect.
For a marg with a twist: Barrio Chino’s spicy grapfruit rules.
p.s. I’m Texan
Margaritas: Ohhh, the margaritas at this little taco place on 14th between 8th and 9th (right hand side as your walking towards 9th). It’s a lower level restaurant and they have a outstanding back yard. Cool in the summer time with a slight wind whisling through the pitchers. Yummy.
The grapefruit margarita and the jalepeno margarita on the rocks – AMAZING! Plus the bartender is cute, which makes it doubly delicious!
El Rio Grande… on East 38th.
