    Tacos with grasshopper encrusted shrimp, avocado sauce and more. I️ cut the shrimp in half and put it on the side to eat since the tortillas were small. The tacos tasted great.

    Very mediocre. No place to wait, service was slow, food was mediocre, tiny portions, and they force dessert menus on you. Servers were nice and Grasshoppers were decent.

    they find a way to work insects into a lot of their dishes, but don't worry - it's done thoughtfully

    Guac $13 if you like mix ins like tomato, crispy chickpeas, scallions, radish and orange. Add grasshoppers: $8 for an espresso sized cup of them. Novel but not amazing. Snapper entree $25

    Food laden with insects. An appetizer of black ant guacamole, grasshopper-crusted shrimp. A cocktail-lounge atmosphere and a hip flair with warm wooden tables and bistro-tiled floors

    Unless you know the Spanish word chapulín, you may not realize that the shrimp tacos are battered and fried in a crust of grasshoppers, creating a deliciously recursive arthropod. Baca selanjutnya

    Creative menu & low key atmosphere. Guac was delish & a large serving so you get your $ worth. I had Tacos de lobo (wolf fish cheeks) & loved it - beware there's a bit of a kick w/ the chile salsa.

    The grasshoppers on the menu are actual grasshoppers. And the black ant salt is actually made of black ants.

    Fun atmosphere, service is slow though. The guacamole is the best thing on the menu. The duck dumplings are too fried and the short rib is good but plain.

    Great good. Amazing desserts. Weekend service though just aims to rush you out. Really bad. Friendly. But the obviously goal of management is to rush the guests out for the next set of guests.

    At brunch, the lobster biscuits were pretty good. The scrambled egg tacos actually have an omelette inside (quite dry). A nice concept but execution doesn't really live up.

    One of the boldest Mexican menus in NYC taking a refined and super modern twist on Mexican cuisine. The cocktails are terrific and if you're feeling daring they'll bring you some fried grasshoppers!

    Start with the Black Ant Guacamole, Huarache de Nopal and shrimp tacos. Definitely order the rabbit enchiladas (best dish of the night), and wash it all down with a Climbing Ant.

    One of the best guacamoles in the game, but it's served with soft tortillas instead of chips--make sure to ask for the latter and they'll bring it. Don't miss the unbelievable churros for dessert!
