When you think of Lower Manhattan, you may think of Wall Street, The Seaport, countless banks and impressive skyscrapers. We also think of our favorite Mexican restaurant – the El Vez New York restaurant in Lower Manhattan.
The atmosphere of El Vez is very authentic and the decor adds just to the right touch. When you walk in, you just know that their food has to be good. Well, they do not disappoint! The menu is full of authentic Mexican options along with a well sorted drink menu that includes their famous margaritas. On the weekends, El Vez also offers a brunch menu from 11am-4pm. Their menu includes a nice selection of traditional breakfast items as well as Mexican influenced options.
El Vez is a nice location to enjoy drinks at. No tourists far and wide and from 6pm on, the bar is full of New York business people who enjoy their after work cocktail with friends/colleagues.
During the warmer seasons you can also enjoy while sitting outside. Also, if you are looking for a place to seat a large group, El Vez will work for you! Just be sure to call ahead so they can get set up for you.

The portions at the El Vez restaurant in Lower Manhattan are plentiful and the prices (main dishes from $15) are absolutely in order. Prior to your main course, be sure to order chips and guacamole (from $16) – the best of the city!

All in all, we loved El Vez – an authentic Mexican restaurant, great service – the waitress was really attentive and we had good drinks all around! We will definitely be back!
