After an evening of dining at Crema, your taste buds will be thoroughly aroused and your flavor for Mexican food truly refined. This romantic and unassuming restaurant is tucked away in the heart of Chelsea. With dim lighting and intimate tables, Crema is great for two or larger parties. If you arrive before 7 PM there is a 2 for 1 happy hour special and complimentary chips are served. This is strongly recommended for all you Recessionistas out there. The menu is somewhat pricey, so it is best to go after payday. Chef and owner Julieta Ballesteros has managed to present Mexican cuisine with a modern spin while maintaining old world flavors.
Quesos Flamidos- grueyere and mushrooms
Alambres de Filete a los Cinco Chiles- filet mignon skewers with vegetables
The last course blew us away with chef Julieta's sweet recommendations:
Pay de Manzana- warm baked apple with cinnamon ice cream drizzled with caramel
111 W. 17th Street
New York, NY 10011
WE love CREMA!
