East Los ""California Chicano Cuisine"" in the Village!
As I walked down Sullivan Street, after a night of endless sightseeing and walking around the streets of NYC, I was in total amazement that there was a restaurant in Greenwich Village with a picture of a traditional ""East LA Vato"" on the front of a restaurant, in a neighborhood that was historically known for being a bohemian sort. Being from Boyle Heights, I had to take a photo of this restaurant! As I peered in just to look at the menu and I was totally taken a back by the restaurant theme, which payed homage to all the ""Chicano neighborhoods"" in L.A., as well as the traditional meals that were made by our Chicana moms. I was very pleased at how attentive the owners made you feel and if you let them know you're from L.A., this place is like a home, away from home, even if you're not into the ""vato/cholo culture decor."" My husband and I had already eaten that evening, but I did get to indulge in the margaritas, which I must say, were the best I've ever had in NYC. I look forward to coming back to this place, next time I'm in the village.
