I'm coming to NYC for the first time with my SO, and have pretty much narrowed down our eating plans, with much help from hounds who frequent these boards.
The only debate remaining is our first night - we want some good, casual Mexican reasonably close to our hotel (45th, between 5th and 6th). Criteria? Good tequila and margaritas, reasonably authentic (I'm not ashamed to admit I like a good taco), and location. Any suggestions? While price is always an issue, given the cuisine, it's not. I was leaning towards Pampano, but it seems like it might be a bit much after a day of dealing with airlines.
On a separate topic, thanks to all of the hounds who frequent this site, you've given me much inspiration and wonderful ideas for the balance of our trip.
