What to eat on Cinco de Mayo
We created the perfect May 5th meal (if you don’t mind hitting a few spots around the city).
Yellowtail ceviche from Bodega Negra
Dream Downtown Hotel, 355 W. 16th St., 212-229-2336
We love the addition of a coconut ginger crema sauce, which gives the dish an Asian tang.
Chicken tinga tamales from Salvation Taco
145 E. 39th St., 212-865-5800
It’ll cost you just a fiver for one of Chef April Bloomfield’s Mexican appetizers, which is cooked in a smoky tomato sauce.
Crispy fish tacos from Café El Presidente
30 W. 24th St., 646-429-8284
We love the crunchy combo of slaw and batter-fried fish at this new casual eatery from the owners of Tacombi on the Lower East Side.
Churro ice cream sandwich from BLT Steak New York
106 E. 57th St, 212-752-7470
The sugary treat is served with a spicy chocolate dip as well as a margarita caramel sauce. We might have to buy some subway churros and recreate it at home.
