NYC's Oldest Mexican Restuarant

Whether dining, partying, or shopping, I prefer to stay below 14th street.  But sometimes there are destinations worth traveling uptown for.   El Parador Café is one of those special places.  As the oldest authentic Mexican restaurant in New York City, El Parador Café boasts a traditional menu, an old world decorated vibe, and top service.   Located on 34th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues, it may seem off the beaten path to city dwellers and commuters alike, which has made it a best kept secret for foodies.
If your office is located in Midtown, take advantage of their new $20 three-course prix fixe lunch menu.  Stop by the bar for happy hour or pre-dinner drinks to order one of the best margaritas you’ve ever tasted this side of the Mexico border.  Light, crisp, and not too sweet, these tequila-heavy drinks are dangerous.  When making dinner reservations for a date with your new crush or for a girls’ night out, make sure to order the Taco Tray (Grilled Chicken, Beef Picadillo, Chorizo, Refried Beans, Guacamole, Crema, Tomatoes, Cilantro, Onions And Cheese) for the perfect variety to share.  Each meat is perfectly marinated, tender, and clearly made with care.  For a special treat, call ahead to enjoy additional specials to the Taco Tray, such as Beef Tongue, Chorizo with Potatoes, and Braised Short Ribs.  These specialty items are rotating features that can be prepared at your advance request.
For the best authentic Mexican food and margaritas in New York City, grab your passport (aka unlimited monthly Metrocard) and head to Midtown.
