The Best Margaritas and Guacamole at El Vez New York

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.

  • We suggest making El Vez reservations if you have a large party or you want to ensure you will be sat as quickly as possible!
