The culinary colonizing of Midtown continues with this bustling New York import bringing Mexican eats to a space that looks like a warehouse loft met a flea market. Keeping you busy: fresh-pounded guacs mixed with poblano and chipotle peppers, fish tacos slathered in tomatillo-garlic mojo and an impressive list of tequilas.

Fish Tacos, Latin Funk and Absinthe Parties
The weekend is a bracket buster.
If you're looking to spend a very Miami night in Miami, look no further than D. Rodriguez Cuba this evening. The South Beach spot will have Afro-Cuban funk band Palo! playing live starting at 9pm (no cover), and something tells us they'll be able to pair those sultry Latin rhythms with a mojito or two. And by something, we mean the menu they sent us.
Local musical duo The Big Bounce (a 1-2 punch of bearded troubadour Brendan O'Hara and beatboxer Michael "Komakozie" Rodney) have just dropped their first studio album, and they're counting on you to help them celebrate. Ticket gets you into a pre-concert reception with unlimited vodka drinks and an after-party in the Florida Room, where gratis Fenom absinthe will flow. All great concerts end with absinthe.
If you've been looking for an excuse to don your best Irish Donegal cap and ride your bike through the streets of Coral Gables, here it is. The journey begins at the University Metrorail station, with prizes doled out to the most dapper chap, the most snappy lass, the best real mustache and the best vintage steed. Give our best to Andrew Bernard.
The New Hotel's poolside beer garden has just upped their tap count to 12, including rare brews like Dogfish Head's Raison D'Etre, Stone's Double Bastard and Rogue's Dead Guy Ale. There are a few new menu items as well, like chorizo-stuffed squid and Callos de Sevilla: minced cow intestines seasoned with sage and mushrooms. Nothing fills the belly like... belly.
