May is here, and what better way to celebrate than with some Cinco De Mayo festivities? After you check out the parade in Manhattan, take a ride over to one of these top picks from the Lyft NYC team and celebrate 5/5 in style.
1. La Contenta
This authentic Mexican restaurant and bar in the heart of the Lower East Side offers a traditional menu with French accents and Alt Agave Spirits. Check out their Blackberry Michelada!
Located in Williamsburg, Mesa Coyoacan serves authentic Mexican food and drinks using organic ingredients while taking recipes from their grandmothers. Order the Chiles en Nogada (roasted Poblano pepper stuffed with shredded pork, peaches, pears, apples and almonds covered in a walnut sauce and pomegranate) and don't forget about their margaritas!
Los Tacos No. 1 was created after 3 close friends from Tijuana, Mexico and Brawley, California decided to bring the authentic Mexican taco to the East coast. The authentic taste comes from family recipes and from fresh, simple and tasteful ingredients straight from home. Grab some tacos without hurting your wallet.
4. Casa Enrique
This Long Island City spot has people coming in from all over to get a taste of traditional Chiapas dishes. Grab some food and check out the artwork in their garden.
With locations in the West Village, Upper East Side, and Williamsburg, it'll be hard to miss this well-loved Mexican bar and grill that serves some of the best chips and guac in the city. Take advantage of their fresh table side guacamole and daily happy hour specials.
Too many margaritas? We're here to provide you with easy and safe rides so you can celebrate Cinco De Mayo worry-free.
