Was tempted to not write a review because I was worried this place would become overcrowded but they definitely deserve the credit. They have really great meal deals and a pretty nice happy hour to match. Tacos tasted fresh and the margaritas come in a variety of flavors. Pretty decent size space with outside seating. A definite must try- I'll... More

Cascabel upper east side is an excellent spot for a bite or more. Food is ok and the choice of cocktails is really nice. As usual, I spotted that there is always a table for you when you cross the door. A must have where you have pleasure to go and again and again.

I went here with my family for a casual dinner the night we got to the city. The food served was very tasty, and they had some different but tasty drinks. The restaurant itself was tiny but it was a fun place that many locals go to eat. The staff was also very helpful and nice. The only problem with... More

Cascabel Taqueria East is a fairly small restaurant with the feel of a sports bar -- and two gigantic TVs to prove it -- in the front, but it is definitely a fine place to try NYC's version of Mexican food. Sports fans don't despair -- they have a great lineup of craft beer as well. Black beans on the... More

There is a lot to choose from at this unassuming taco place. We stumbled in there after a few hours at a dive bar across the street. We just wanted to grab something quick and cheap. the hostess was very gracious and insisted we take a table, even though we told her we were only going to split an order... More

This place has an eclectic menu with healthy options and a very yummy diversity of tastes. Fast service! We loved the Thai chili guacamole, and I had crispy shrimp tacos which did not disappoint. They were amazing! Our waiter was very attentive and polite. My husband watched soccer while we ate and I watched the cars go by on Broadway.... More

Our New York friend took us here. Small but nice, we ate outside on the sidewalk. Had 3 sangria X, 2 steak burritos, corn on the yummy cob, and pair of tacos., fish.... $81.66. Really interesting fusion food. I wish the fish taco were not deep fried but everything else was great. Highly recommend the 6.00 corn on the cob.... More

A fun place to go to, you can watch TV at the bar, or do some people watching al fresco, all this while eating some delicious tasty Mexican food. You will not find nachos here, or quesadillas, try their tacos, the macaroni & cheese, the corn on the cob and so much more... Rustic margaritas taste great in mason's jars,... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
