The Goodwin 430 Hudson Street, West Village
Named for the company that owned the 300-acre tobacco farm that once occupied the area, The Goodwin is reminiscent of its land’s history while maintaining a modern edge. The brick wall bar fashions the wine selection at the wine bar and café, carrying a pretty descent wine list that complements the food selections. The menu is moderately priced and features options like a sandwich composed of tempura mussels, oysters, clams & chorizo in spicy pork gravy served on pretzel hero with pickled onions and herb fries or line caught cod with market vegetables and yellow pepper gastrique. Larger plates are available after 5 pm.

It's hard to keep up with the times in this city. Is artisan bourbon cool right now, or is it novelty vodka from Bulgaria? Maybe it's a cocktail attempting to perfectly blend the two. Well, the answer is always yes, as long as it's new. The trouble is, sometimes we need somewhere familiar. Everybody wants that Cheers-esque place where everybody knows your name and your favorite drink is waiting for you by the time your jacket hits the back of the chair. As a Southerner, the corner Mexican joint was always a reliable spot for libations and satisfying viands without the pretense of a doorman or dress code, however it is garishly apparent that the casual Mexican eatery has been overlooked in the NYC, that is until Casa Mezcal.

Located in the heart of Chelsea amongst the bustling streets of New York, you will find a high-end neighborhood eatery and lounge. It can be easy to miss since Las Chicas Locas is located in the Sheraton Hotel, but don’t miss out on a chance to try LCL’s unique and authentic Mexican cuisine. The menu offers modern Mexican food with a spin. If you desire spicy food this is this place to check out.
Succumbing to pressure from the State Liquor Authority, La Superior is no longer allowing patrons to bring their own alcohol. The restaurant can justifiably have some guff with the SLA as it has been waiting seven months to receive its liquor license.
Despite its current dry state, La Superior remains tops on my list for Brooklyn Mexican cuisine. Even though the staff includes an obnoxious Swede who has the hots for my girlfriend and a smartass waitress who loves correcting my pronunciation of chorizo (chuh-ree-zoh), I’ve kept coming back, which is a testament to the quality of their food.
