Mexican in Union Square, Flatiron District & Gramercy

Mexican gets haute at this slinky, charcoal-hued restaurant, home to chef Enrique Olvera and his innovative takes on south-of-the-border flavors. Subvert culinary stereotypes with the likes of delicate, invigorating scallops with avocado and jicama, a fresh bean salad with a charred cucumber vinaigrette, herb guacamole or Cosme’s cult-status duck carnitas. Book ahead or try your luck at the walk-in bar.
