I'm absolutely obsessed with Mexican food lately. Mr. T thinks I'm crazy but I seriously just want to eat some form of taco for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So when taqueria and tequila bar Casa Neta moved into the old Flute Gramercy it was like a chorus of angels came down from heaven just for me.
The redesigned space is long and sleek with a marble topped bar and a cozy alcove for more intimate dinners. Drinks include all sorts of wine, margaritas and beer cocktails along with some Casa Neta originals like the creamy Oxacan Sunscreen with house horchata and coconut and a fruity Frida's Lover with cinnamon tequila and strawberry.
A variety of tacos, ceviche and queso dot the menu including hefty Short Rib tacos loaded with layers of tender beef, poblano rajas, manchego cheese and an avocado- crema. These were amazing and I loved how they put both the pico de gallo and guacamole on the side when I asked for no cilantro.
I was too full from the tacos to get any dessert but Casa Neta also offers CHURROS! One of my favorite desserts in the entire world. I may start eating here 5 days a week.
