Hecho en Dumbo
354 Bowery, Astor Place
Chef Danny Mena is celebrating Christmas all December with a menu of traditional Mexican holiday favorites. His version of Mexican hot chocolate is thickened with masa into a smooth concoction called champurrado, with vanilla and chocolate from Zacatecas state, which is said to produce the best chocolate in the Western Hemisphere. Bonus: Get it spiked with Mount Gay rum, or order the dessert empanadas and get a complimentary cup.
