Just outside of the 2nd Avenue Subway station on 86th Street and the 86th street cross-town bus - we had a great meal with good friends. Maz Mezcal is bright, almost gaudy - but the comments from the departing patrons clued us in that it...More

Tonight was my first visit to this restaurant and I couldn't have been more pleased. The hostess/owner was very nice as well as the staff. I ordered a chicken dish and I've never had better chicken at any other Mexican restaurant. The margarita was good...More
