Posted: Nov 03, 2017
You must be new in town if you don’t know the answer to this question. What if you are not new to the city of Manhattan? Then you need to be introduced to the best gastronomic experience yet! All the way from the heritage-rich country of Mexico perched in midtown Manhattan is Viva Verde. Those in the know have described it fondly as the "wholesome Mexican experience" and the ones just finding out have questioned their previous encounters with the famed Mexican cuisine.
Viva Verde is a contemporary Mexican inspired cocktail bar and restaurant that prides itself for not just sustaining a truly Mexican dining experience but for also bringing the taste, sounds and smells of Mexico to your doorstep in the heart of Midtown New York City. It is a total cultural package rich enough to make a Mexican nostalgic and win a new convert in a meal. The menu features mouth-watering varieties of cuisines from small plate offerings to Tacos, Salads, and desert.
But then just how loco is Viva Verde? Let’s check with Chef Hugo. Chef Hugo has been spinning delicious dishes at Viva Verde for quite some time now, dishes that have kept customers loyal for as long as I can remember. His recipes are highly coveted. Star dishes on the menu include the Guacamole, which is a tasty avocado-based dip, spread, or salad synonymous to the Aztecs of Mexico. His variations are the tableside and the loaded Guacamole. Mmm, I love ceviche. It will always remind me of Mexico! It brings to mind my never-ending quest for more ceviche and guacamole. And of course my Mexican friends, some of which also share this ceviche obsession. And what do I do, I introduced my new friends to Viva Verde where they have the best ceviche and watch them catch the buzz.
When it comes to dessert sort of the Tres leches with berries. For newcomers to this treat, what you have here is a very simple popular cake recipe in Mexico and Central America. Very light in texture, this deliciously moist cake received its name because it is soaked overnight in three kinds of milk. Imagine sweet delicate cake prepared Mexican style. No infiltration, nothing but moist sweetness. If someone is offering the Tres leches with berries, chances are it will be good and the one served at Viva Verde is amazing. It was very flavorful with an unexpected zing to it. In fact, it is so very sweet and tasty that it demanded the accompaniment of a cocktail to complete the experience.
Vida Verde's bar bursts with boozy potential. Boasting one of the largest mezcal and tequila selections in NYC so much so that it’ll make the whole Mexico Loco. Vida Verde’s beer list features an authentic mix of American craft and Mexican beers. The wine list offers an inspired selection!
