Alta Calidad is the best Mexican option in the neighborhood. The space is cool and casual, and tends to reach full capacity at brunch, when they offer one-hour bottomless drinks with any entree. We like the huevos divorciados best, mostly because multiple salsas on one plate makes us feel luxurious, and at night you can’t go wrong with a couple of steak or fish tacos with a side of queso loaded with chorizo.

Tacombi @ Fonda Nolita
Tacombi has an awesome Mexican courtyard, and gets serious points for creativity. All in all, we back the place, especially now that they have a liquor license.
Quick, specialty fast foods are something lower Manhattan now thrives on, and Tortaria deserves to be mentioned alongside their fellow low-cost, high-reward brethren. There’s a Mexican sandwich and a taquito for every palate.
