Ole! A new Mexican joint has graced our presence in Tribeca: Pelea. With a gorgeous space with high ceilings, there is plenty of room for your tequila imbibing and Mexican fare consumption.
Start with some chips and salsa, and an order of guacamole. Then move on to the flautas con pollo. Crispy shell, tasty chicken, a fine starter.
Jumbo shrimp al ajillo, with mussels and clams over rice, similar to paella, was great. It had surprising heat and power to it, that was quite welcoming. There was no holding back with the flavor, and it was much appreciated.
So have a siesta at Pelea. With music by a DJ, festive cocktails and bites, you're bound to have fun. Ole!
