Cuisine:Mexican. Price: $$. Location: .

A basement level Mexican restaurant in the middle of Chinatown, Pulqueria is a hidden spot that’s great for dancing as well as a casual sit-down meal. The space is inspired by the street markets of Mexico and by ancient Aztec culture, and it’s named after an alcoholic beverage—Pulque, made from an agave plant—that it was the first to serve in NYC. Make a reservation.
