Right off the Metropolitan G/L stop, Zona Rosa is a great place to meet up with a few friends over tacos, margaritas, and guacamole on its awesome roof.

Jajaja is a vegan Mexican restaurant on the LES. Is it the best Mexican in the city? No. But if you’re a vegan, you’ll probably be into it.
Tacombi @ Fonda Nolita
