Mexican in Sunset Park

Rick Elkins | Oct 6, 1999 04:13 PM

We were exploring Sunset Park last weekend when we found a little Mexican cafe that we wondered if anybody else here had tried. It's called Rico's and its on 51st street just around the corner from 5th ave. We were the only Anglos there, but the sweet waitress made us feel very welcome.
It has a green awning with a few tables spilling onto the sidewalk, and the interior is open to the air. It looks and feels very Mexican to us. As for the food, our limited
Spanish confined me to ordering what I could translate, like small
freshly made tacos and posole, but we both thought they were quite good. A woman in the back was kept quite busy turning out fresh tortillas for the patrons, while ranchero music played.

Any other ideas for places in the nabe?
