Cen City
The Catch Guys’ New Mexican Stunner

In the beginning, there was SL. And it was good.

And then, there was Catch. And it was also good.

And then came Finale. And the General. And they were... wait for it... good.

In related news...

Bienvenidos a La Cenita Steak, a bi-level den of Mexican delights from the guys who brought you all of the places we just mentioned, opening tomorrow in the Meatpacking District.

Think of this as Catch’s younger, even more adventurous sister—and she just returned from a tequila-soaked year in Mexico City. The bottom floor: a grand banquet hall. The top: a low-ceilinged date spot. And all around: Aztec hieroglyphics and exposed brick covered in faded graffiti. Oh, and a DJ, because... of course.

If you’re here with a group, claim a booth and order one of everything. (The menu’s from a La Esquina vet.) If you’re here on a date, grab two seats upstairs at the ceviche bar and, uh... eat ceviche. Also, maybe get some cactus-juice margaritas topped with chili foam. (Yes: chili comes as foam now.)

Whatever your move, make sure you finish with the empanada s’more—which is basically an oversize empanada filled with brownie and marshmallow.

It’s the thinking man’s Choco Taco.
