This is definitely one of New York City's secrets, worth sharing! The façade doesn't tell much, but La Esquina offers an innovative rendition on tasty Mexican inspired street food.
A fine dining brasserie in the basement requires reservations. An amazing selection of Mexican food is offered - from Mexican style grilled corn to ceviche.
Plus, they offer Catering service and they have a few amazing products for sale at www.goldbely.com, like different salsas and black bean!
- Salsa Roja: A charred salsa famous at the restaurant for its fresh, yet smoky taste featuring fire roasted tomatoes, garlic and onions.
- Salsa Roja: Hot A spicy (but not too hot) version of their original salsa roja.
- Salsa Verde: This refreshing salsa is zesty and features tomatillos, fire roasted onions, serrano peppers and cilantro.
- Black Bean Dip: This smoky dip is one of Food & Wine Magazine’s favorite snacks! Smoky, yet sweet, this dip features black beans, fire roasted tomatoes, serrano peppers and cilantro.
They recently opened a second place in Williamsburg, Brooklyn! It's named "Café de la Esquina" and it's located at 225 Wythe Avenue!
