A testament to over sixty years of familial dedication to bringing the best of traditional Mexican cuisine to the Upper East Side; Maz Mezcal now enjoys a fine reputation for fusion cuisine, that combines elements of ancient Aztec cooking, with Spanish inspiration from the years of dominance in Mexico. Tomatoes, onions, lime and green chilli provide the basis for sauces that are then infused with Tequilas or rums, for rich chicken/ beef marinades. Patrons often visit Maz Mezcal purely to enjoy the stunning abundance of art which now dominates hanging space, created by past owners, local artists and present day staff, much of which harks back to Mexican traditionalism and history. For between $15-$25 per person, Maz Mezcal is an affordable, yet vibrant dining experience not to be missed.
