East Village Mexican: Mercadito vs La Palapa

msfood | Dec 17, 2007 10:15 AM

Having birthday dinner for my boyfriend on Friday night. There will probably be around 6-8 people having dinner.

He wants Mexican and needs to be near the East Village because he wants to check out this bar in the area after dinner.

I've been to La Palapa on St. Mark's a couple of times and always enjoyed it, but I've been reading some good things about Mercadito.

Better food is important, but if they're comparable then I think being comfortable with a large party comes a close second in importance.

Any recommendations you might have are appreciated. Or if anyone knows of another good Mexican spot in the area that is worth checking out.
