Photos: Paxia, the subject of this week's review
Though I love Los Carboncitos, which is owned by brothers Cesar, Roberto and Ignacio Leon, I wasn't thrilled with Paxia, the restaurant they opened last year in the Sunnyside neighborhood. Although the atmosphere is very peaceful, as I discovered when I ate there for this week's review, the food can be very, very dry.
That said, Paxia has a nice patio and good margaritas, which still makes it a tempting destination on a saunny day -- especially because Los Carboncitos has no outdoor seating and no liquor license. Here, to go with my review, is a side of photos:
Mark Manger Enchiladas mineras, one of the many enchilada dishes on the menu. Mark Manger Camarones al mojo de ajo: garlic shrimp. Mark Manger Quesadillas stuffed with chicken. Mark Manger Tostada de tinga with chipotle-marinated beef and queso fresco.
