This place Rocks! When I've traveled into N.Y. and have had my share of good pizza and Italian food, I always want a touch of home, L.A. vicinity, I've found that Florencia 13 is my home away from home. The food is favorable and the drinks, Margaritas, superb! I highly recommend that this place is The Best place in N.Y. for So Calilf. Mexican food!!
This place is on par with Taco Bell- No Bueno. This place sucks. The margaritas are horrible and staff is both slow and incompetent. If Taco Bell had a liquor license they would beat them. No exaggeration, our second round was literally a pint glass full of lime juice. I’m not saying that have to be Tom Coughlan from Cocktail or one of the guys from Apotheke, but how hard is it to make a good margarita?
East Los "California Chicano Cuisine" in the Village!. As I walked down Sullivan Street, after a night of endless sightseeing and walking around the streets of NYC, I was in total amazement that there was a restaurant in Greenwich Village with a picture of a traditional "East LA Vato" on the front of a restaurant, in a neighborhood that was historically known for being a bohemian sort. Being from Boyle Heights, I had to take a photo of this restaurant! As I peered in just to look at the menu and I was totally taken a back by the restaurant theme, which payed homage to all the "Chicano neighborhoods" in L.A., as well as the traditional meals that were made by our Chicana moms. I was very pleased at how attentive the owners made you feel and if you let them know you're from L.A., this place is like a home, away from home, even if you're not into the "vato/cholo culture decor." My husband and I had already eaten that evening, but I did get to indulge in the margaritas, which I must say, were the best I've ever had in NYC. I look forward to coming back to this place, next time I'm in the village.
That enchilada sauce YUMMMMMMMM!.
I'm from LA originally although I have been here for 30 years. I definitely got an LA vibe going into the place.
The food was great. The queso fondido (spelling?) and the enchilada's were superb. I'm definitely going back!
BTW, this isn't my first review but I don't usually take the time to write them-but this place deserves the get some praise. Orale!
best mexican food NYC. I have made Florencia 13 a common destination to start my evening. Great drinks and burritos always make for a good evening. I would go as far as to claim this is my favorite mexican food spot in NYC.
My home away from home.. This is a great place for Angelinos in New York. The owner left L.A. to escape the rift raft and started this restaurant/bar, and brought with him authentic Mexican food. The drinks are solid and the ambiance is unbeatable. I especially enjoy mingling with other Angelinos, either travelers or students.
disappointed. We've been here before and sat at the bar and was treated really great by the bartender. He served us great drinks. we just recently went back last weekend and was rudely told if we are not eating we could'nt sit at a table near the window, fine but say it nicely. this place is small and there was one seat left at the bar at it was pretty cramped. so we stood no big deal, had another good round of drinks. we finally got a seat and there was a bus boy filling water carafes who practically yawned in our faces, it didnt seem like a real yawn seemed like he was being purposely rude to us for some strange reason. all in all come to this place if you want to eat not just hang at the bar, its too small and you feel like you are practically up the bartenders/busboy/waitress' you know what.
simply great. I've been There a few times and I must say: It's Simply DELICIOUS. The food is always fresh and tasty no matter what time and it always leaves you wanting more and more ...maybe because there is So much to choose from! They have EVERYTHING . Great selections .......
LOVED ITTTT....GREAT PRICES.
OK SO I WAS IN FLORENCIA THIS PAST SATURDAY FOR BRUNCH AND I MUST SAY THE FOOD WAS OUTSTANDING!! HAVENT HAD SUCH A GREAT CHORIZO AND EGGS ANYWHERE ELSE....THE COMPLIMENTARY BLOODY MARY OR MIMOSA WAS VERY WELCOMED....THE SERVER WAS AWESOME, VERY AWARE OF WHAT WE NEEDED AND WAS ALWAYS AROUND TO CHECK ON US....COOL SHIRT DUDE!!
WILL DEFF BE GOING BACK THERE MORE OFTEN
Good food but BAD service. Outside of that RUDE female bar tender & the one busboy who seems to watch you instead of get what you need the place is alright. There is a male bartender that more than made up for the bad service of his fellow employees. Atmosphere is perfect and safe. There is no way a Silverlake ex-pat would be safe in place like this out west! Great place for the west coasters who miss home & for the New Yorkers who want a taste of the TRUE Los Angeles, not that hyped up, Hollywood phoniness.
