Mesa Grill – NYC

In Uncategorized on January 9, 2010 at 5:36 pm

While I may not be the biggest fan of Flay — I will say, Mesa Grill located between 15th and 5th in NYC really hit the spot for an authentic Southwestern Flared dinner. It was loud, crowded, and bustling — don’t look to Mesa Grill for a romantic and quiet evening out with a partner, you will not find that here.

Here are the perks — broken down in English —

1) Beautiful presentation of all dishes prepared

2) Timely service — not too efficient, not lagging

3) The Grilled Mahi Mahi with Pineapple Chile Sauce, Carmelized Pineapple Onion Salsa, and Creamy Green Chile Rice was ABSOLUTELY OUT OF THIS WORLD… COME TO THIS RESTAURANT FOR THIS DISH

4) Reasonably priced — I don’t feel as though it was overpriced by any means — dish sizes were proportional and I left satisfied

The downsides:

1) Too noisy and bustling for many people

2) Many booths are located right by the door (i.e. — ours) — when it’s 20 outside? The last place you’d like to sit is right by a door

3) The “no substitutions whatsoever” rule got to both me and my friend — we understood not taking out key ingredients that MAKE the dish but my girlfriend wanted potatoes instead of fries and they simply would not have that
