4. Casa Enrique: 5-48 49th Ave.
Casa Enrique keeps things simple with its Mexican cuisine—there are no frills or out-there experimentations, but what they do, they do well. The best, some may argue. The menu consists of classics like guacamole, ceviche, and a variety of enchiladas and tacos—but its the fresh and seasonal ingredients that really pack a punch. Chef Cosme Aquilar is determined to feed New Yorkers home-cooked meals from his childhood in Chiapas, Mexico, and it’s paid off—the eatery has been Michelin-starred for three years (and at that, is very affordable).
