TABLE FOR ONE: TEQA

Does really good Mexican cuisine exist in Murray Hill? Yes. Chef Lisa Schoen, who used to be Derek Jeter's personal chef, is now serving great Mexican bites to the hoards of Murray Hill diners, and beyond. I had a a quick little tasting last week, and felt like an MVP.

Quesadillas with shredded chicken breast, black beans, 3-cheese, and a specail Teqa sauce, were delicious!

Pulled pork tacos, with roasted pineapple salsa, Romesco, and jalapeƱo were terrific. I loved the play on sweetness and spiciness on these little guys.

The Old School Tacos, hard taco, ground beef, 3-cheese, pico de gallo, and sour cream, were fabulous. The beef was juicy and had great flavor. These tacos made me smile.

So grab a margarita or three, and dine on some perfect Mexican cuisine at Teqa, Murray Hill's new Mexican oasis. Trust me, you'll feel like an MVP too.
