I concur with earlier hound reports on Tierras Mexicanas (31st Street and 36th Ave in LIC). This is definitely one of the best mexican restaurant's we've tried in NYC. Much better than the overpriced and mediocre Rosa Mexicana at a fraction of the price!
The hanger steak (over a nicely presented mound of mushroom and potatoes, topped with, umm way-too-limey quac) was fabulous. The Mariscada was excellent as well, although the shellfish was all comimcally small. Pan sauteed calamari (no breading) all over the top). rice and beans with maduro chunks mixed in. Shrimp seperately seasoned (grilled?) -- really tasty! Everything was presented very attractively.
The service was kind of confused -- but no big deal. They never even asked how we liked our meal! It's like they know how good it is and they don't need the confirmation...
definitely a keeper. Hope they can stay in biz...
