One of my NYC favorites. Unique dishes, unique drinks, and the most unique interior decor I've experienced in a restaurant (there is a reason for that, ask the staff). This place is tapas and that normally annoys me, but sharing here is awesome because the company you bring couldn't possibly order something bad.

ABC cocina is one of my favorite brunch spots. Everything that I’ve had here is good. The best way to experience this place is to make a reservation, I’m not sure if walk-ins are accommodated. Last time I was here, I had the French toast which was great and the tuna burger. This was one of the best tuna burgers I’ve ever had. But you really just get the burger, no sides, no salad … just the burger. Even though this place has amazing food, it is still kind of pricey, so its not my average brunch spot. But the atmosphere is trendy and unique. It sits adjacent to abc kitchen, another one of my favorites.

Terrific small plates and cocktails. Excellent service and very attractive space. Small plates make it very easy to over-order, so take your time and add as needed.

I am in love with ABC Kitchen so I naturally believe that ABC Cocina is going to deliver. You do have to try a little harder to find this restaurant first because it is literally hidden by the ABC Kitchen! It has a nice open design with funky pipes on the ceiling and beautiful people dining here. I was here for the food of course and I didn't know it was tapas style Latin fusion cuisine. Nevertheless, I was happy with my food choices. We got their Guacamole with peas and it was filling and fresh because the peas add a unique flavor to it. In addition, their sausage stuffed octopus with chickpeas are spicy and tasty. For entree, I had the Blackened Fish Taco and it is amazing. It comes in two and they are deep fried so you should be getting some nice calories there. If you wish to eat healthy, you can go for the grilled version. My dear friend had their coconut banana pancakes and that was absolutely amazing too. She can't even finish the whole thing.

What a dream! First of all, the vibe of this place is GORGEOUS! Underwater theme with seashells coming out of the walls and amazing light fixtures everywhere. Wouldn't expect anything less from an ABC restaurant! We came here on a Wednesday night without a reservation but they seated us by the time we finished our first drink at the bar. Which brings me to my next highlight of the evening. The MARGARITAS! We tried the Classic, Mango and Passion Fruit. Our favorite was the smokey passion fruit marg and the mango came in close second. The mango margarita is served in a martini glass with a chili dipped, dried mango chunk on a skewer. Fancy! Once we got to our table (they don't allow food at the side seating around the bar, only at the bar or at tables.) we ordered the guacamole, the gooy ham and cheese fritters and the griddled fish tacos. ALL were AMAZING and wonderful and made my girlfriend and I do a little dance with each bite. We went with the non-fried version for the fish tacos which were delicious with pieces of pickled ginger and cabbage on top! Nice twist! We were told the chef recommends the crunchy/fried option for the dish so we will have to try that next time. I honestly can't imagine the tacos tasting any better though. For dessert we tried fritters dipped in mexican chocolate and the flan. We were beside ourselves with how delicious everything was. Definitely going back! Gracias ABC Cocina!

My fiancé and I came in on Mother's Day around 1pm for brunch without reservation. To our surprise, there was a table available and we were seated immediately. However, It took quite some time for our server to come over with the menu. And when he did, he didn't seemed too interested in us. He hurriedly explained the menu and scrambled away. Although our server suggested ordering 5-7 plates for the two of us (which I thought sounded a bit ridiculous), we decided on one small, one large, and one masa/rice plate. Small - fluke - we counted 7-8 fresh sashimi pieces swimming their chili lime sauce - light and refreshing - perfect way to start a meal! Large - tuna burger - tuna was blend and the jalapeño aioli was one dimensional - straight salty. Thank goodness for the habanero sauce at the table. The sesame bun was perfectly toasted tho! Rice - arroz con pollo - their signature dish - large enough to serve 3-4 people, thank goodness we stopped at 3 plates because we were stuffed! This was definitely the best dish- the chicken was tender and juicy, the rice was creamy and perfectly seasoned. With a squeeze of lemon and splash of habanero sauce, it was money! Definitely well worth the price! I didn't recall our server ever come back to check on us. They did have other servers/busboys come back refilling water. Not sure if we were supposed to get a bread basket too but we did notice every table around us received one. Overall 3.5 stars but with meh service = deserves a round down.

Having been to ABC Cocina 5 times, here's our review........ We love this style of eating and you can't make a mistake with anything. We had 8 dishes and shared between 4 of us. As Dale is gluten careful, we had told this to our server and he was helpful. Everything was great.........and not expensive for what it is. Even though the crowd reminds of us as a party as our granddaughter's apartment, we didn't feel the least bit out of place

Excellent experience - once you can get in! It's pretty hard to get a reservation, but that's not their fault. It's worth the wait, though. Nicely done margaritas, and perfect portions for a tapas restaurant (not puny, but you can get a lot of flavors in). The decor is very cool, with funky chandeliers and what looks like a deconstructed beach across the walls. If I could've given 4.5 stars, I would have. My only quibble is that the more interesting-sounding, experimental dishes were inferior to the more basic items (chicken tacos were the best), and they didn't always quite work - for instance, pumpkin empanadas with yogurt sauce wound up kind of dry and uninspired. Still, I'd go back again.
