And the beers did flow and the funky downtown music did play and our host Jon Petrow even joined us for a few cocktails which are exclusive specialty's
made fresh at Mexican Radio.
Jon a friendly upbeat and hip hombre manages Mexican Radio in Soho and has for several years now. His recommendations for cocktails after the amazing
appetizers were served and consumed in whole by my guest and I, were as follows, Fresh Watermelon Margarita's -
The 3 layer Cinco De Mayo and believe me two layers would have been fine but the third really started the creative mischievous juices flowing and how
appropriate since Jon and the owners are artists musicians and crafts man. You can tell the difference in a better quality of food and service when you
experience it. There are a number of Mexican restaurants and taco stands where you can grab a quick burrito but believe me this is not one of those places.
Here the food is handled with care using the freshest ingredients and the proof is in the - (guacamole) ;-)
It was time for the entrees and after the sumptuous appetizers there wasn't much room left but we tried to make room happily. The Cajun Burrito - Shrimp
and Chorizo Sausage, Enchiladas Mole one cheese one with ground beef. A savory Chicken Chimichanga, and finally a chile relleno.
Completely satiated more than buzzed happy as two kids in a candy store after a rampage in the chocolate aisle my date and I whisked off into the sunset in
a Black Limo that was waiting outside
in what turned out to be a rainy windy evening in Manhattan.
Thank you Jon for such a High frequency dinner and looking forward seeing you again soon.
