New York, NY 10012

The Scene
A sleekly restored diner car doubles as a taqueria and a front for one of the city’s most stylish dining destinations. Behind the door marked “Employees Only,” down the stairs and through the bowels of the kitchen, lies a gothic vault ornamented with wrought iron gates and dripping candelabras. Clusters of fashion and music types, outfitted in their best dungeon glam, augment the allure. – Citysearch

I’ve been trying to make reservations to eat at this place for weeks and finally gave up. But stopped by after the Uniqlo store opening and got a seat in their upper level. Finally, if you ask me I liked Cafe Habana more, the food is decent but not whoa! The mexican corn is way better at Cafe Habana and everything else is just ok. I don’t mind going back (walk-in) cuz its so closeby, but I refuse to try to make reservations again. Peep the meal after the jump…
