I first went here 12 or so years ago and it's still a good spot to keep in mind if you're in Nolita. It has a fun atmosphere and good food at very decent prices for Manhattan.

Ths was recommended in a magazine. Not much to look at inside or out but the margarita cocktails and the food were amazing. cheap food but cocktails were $13 each! They were worth it and it was a treat though!

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for
“North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to
be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is
popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,

We shared one. It is an order at the counter place so we did not ask them to half it, we did that ourself at the table.

The tortillas they serve made of corn and fillings are vegetable or meat so you're all set there. The famous grilled corn with Parmesan also Guten free. I found plenty of options.
