“Be prepared for the unexpected” at this East Village Mexican whose “innovative” menu showcases actual ants (and grasshoppers too), plus “amazing” agave-based cocktails; though some find it “more gimmicky than delicious” , a “lively crowd” still has plenty of “fiesta fun” in the “dark” “lounge” -like surrounds.

Great margaritas and the black ant salt is pretty incredible (on everything). They should have mentioned they don't split checks for large parties beforehand. It was a total headache at the end of the night and left the remaining guests with an automatic gratuity to figure out. Also- for goodness sakes fix your AC.

Great experience here celebrating my boyfriends graduation! The food was excellent, I ordered the carnitas tacos and margarita. The staff was very nice as well and seated us quickly without a reservation in the lovely hidden back garden. I will definitely come back to try some of their unique cocktails!

The food is delicious, upscale menu that offers more than tacos even if their fish tacos is delish. Cocktails are good, food arrives at the table as it comes. Service is great.
