Start searchin for that lost shaker of salt, because today is National Margarita Day. Never heard of National Margarita Day? Here is Professor Hans van Puppet on why this February celebration is so important:
In honor of such a noble occasion, we’ve put together a list of neighborhood spots to snag some tequila and limy goodness.
This wouldn’t be the epitome of margarita lists, if we didn’t start off with Fonda (434 7th Ave). Go high class with their Cadillac Margarita (Oro), made with Cazadores Reposado tequila, and Grand Marnier, OR hit up their signature Hibiscus Margarita (Rosalita), made with silver tequila, hibiscus, orange liquor, and lime juice, with their own hibiscus rim.
What is a good margarita (complete with freshly squeezed juices) without a side of delicious food? Piramide (499 5th Ave) fits the bill, and pulls together one of the best table side guacamoles we’ve ever had.
Looking for an impressive tequila selection? Tacos Nuevo Mexico (489 5th Ave) has you covered. Best of all, the margaritas are both reasonably priced, and GOOD.
Although not our go-to place for food, Cantina (494 4th Ave) has a fabulous margarita happy hour ($4), and despite the suspiciously low price, the drinks are strong.
Are we missing a margarita hot spot? Inquiring tequila lovers in the neighborhood want to know.
