La Esquina UES

Moving on up to the Upper East Side, hot spot La Esquina has opened its doors on the Upper East Side. Expect the cool vibe that you’ve come to expect from this taqueria paired with Margaritas of course.

If you are feeling swanky, head to the new a.lounge in the hotel residence AKA Central Park.  This intimate space features two fireplaces, so we anticipate this being a great date spot.
