Neighbourhood: Midtown
Description: Veteran restaurateurs & Mexican food enthusiasts Keith Reichenbach and his brother Willy were surprised when they discovered there was no authentic Mexican eating experience to be found in Midtown NYC. Rather than complain, however, the famous "Beer Brothers" took this as a challenge. The food & beverage specialists turned their prodigious energies toward work, focusing the cooking education gleaned from forays into the streets of Mexico City and Playa del Carmen into designing the dishes they craved to meet New York's urgent need. Because authentic enchiladas, tacos, guacamole & margaritas also required an authentic setting, Habanero Blues was born. Here you can enjoy the sounds, sights and thrilling cuisine of Mexico City in an exciting atmosphere. Avail yourself of tantalizing cocktails, craft mezcal & tequila while snacking on the most authentic street style Mexican cooking in Manhattan. Buen Provecho!

Stopped by after work. Hung out at Bar. Nice happy hour specials. The carne asade was great. Started with the chips and three salsas. Excellent. Good service and nice menu. Highly recommended

Nice bar area with attentive bartenders. We stopped in for drinks only, but saw beautiful sheet pans of nachos being delivered to other diners. Would definitely return to check that out!

Food was good Mexican American fare and the price was right. Atmosphere was off though. Hard to explain.....music was a weird style, manager seemed out of place and one person had rice in a guacamole bowl, two in regular bowl and one just on the plate.

This place was across the street from out hotel. Due to the reviews we were not going to try it. We were hungry, cold and exhausted and decided to go in and give it a shot. I am so glad that we did, the Margaritas are great and I don't really care for them!! The Queso appetizer was very good. The chicken enchiladas are some of the best I have ever tasted and the apple dessert was a fantastic finish. Great choice for sure!!

Restaurant is dressed up to look great but the food was very sub standard. We ordered the fish tacos (which my partner couldn't finish because it tasted so bad) and Mexican salad (which was a salad with a few doritos on the plate). We didnt finish our meal, paid the bill and went to eat somewhere else.
