Is Times Square changing, with the addition of better restaurants? I admit that I have food some good and bad ones there and was curious to check out Dos Caminos, located next to the W hotel, that has been there for a while now. located in the heart of the busiest tourist place in New York, Dos Caminos is a two floors restaurant: the first floor looks very casual, but the room downstairs looks much better, with its large bar serving more than 100 sorts of tequila and cocktails like margarita (I prefer the classic, not frozen, especially in winter) that you can sip while sharing a delicious guacamole made to order. In front of the bar is a sort of lounge that is comfy but that I would not consider for dining as I prefer a proper table, especially to avoid some sauce dripping on my pants...No, there is the dining room there that can be loud and empties as soon as diners head out to the theaters (the best time of the evening: more quiet).
Menu wise, they serve elevated classic dishes and it is a bit overwhelming with so many mouth watering choices, with few vegetarian ones like the vegetarian tacos made with smoked stewed oyster mushrooms a la mexicana, guacamole, pico de Gallo, crema and cotija cheese that they can make vegan by using cashew crema and vegan cotija. But one I can never resist is their mole short ribs: these slow cooked short ribs smothered in a delicious mole negro are fantastic: literally melting in my mouth. The only regret was that there was not enough mole! It was accompanied with arroz con crema, rice with crema that was smooth but heavy, and green pico de Gallo. But do not eat too much because dessert is a must have: their salted caramel tres leches is very good, although I wished they had churros with some salted caramel...
We had a great meal at Dos Caminos Times Square, even if you sort of feel the vibe of Times Square there. Still, I love that place and the food is delicious.
Enjoy (I did)!
