MICHELIN Guide

Bringing a dose of Mexico City chic to the area, this restaurant takes its name from the ancient Mesoamerican fable of an ant and incorporates that imagery throughout the setting. Black-and-white checkerboard flooring, wall tiles bearing the insect's motif, and a cool giant ant mural reinforce the theme. The menu is an unrestricted look at this nation’s cuisine. It is only fitting that specialties here include the Climbing Ant cocktail with tequila, Aperol and mole bitters; guacamole seasoned with crushed ant salt; and grasshopper-crusted shrimp tacos. Bug-free creations are just as appealing, as in tacos with fried cod cheek and cabbage-mango slaw.

For a more traditional but moodier experience, stop by sister restaurant Ofrenda in the West Village.
