MICHELIN Guide 2018


This chic little Mexican restaurant, whose name means "bear" in Spanish, sits opposite the City College of New York. The charming space is dressed in wood tables, warm lighting, and a Dia de los Muertos mural gracing a corner. One black-tiled dining counter is lined with vintage white metal stools, while another small bar faces the tidy open kitchen where the cooks hand-make tortillas at a steady clip. The cuisine of Mexico City inspires Oso's menu with a concise, impressive offering of dishes like braised octopus tostada with mandarin salsa, guava- and chipotle-glazed ribs, as well as authentic tacos and antojitos. Come summer, don't miss the wonderful radish salad, served warm with fresh cilantro, serrano peppers, anchovies, and tomato vinaigrette. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
