Celebrate National Guacamole Day on September 16

September 15, 2020

No matter the upcharge, we’re all usually on the same page when it comes to guacamole – yes, please! No one can resist a hearty bowl of guacamole, especially if it’s freshly made and mixed with all of your favorite Mexican toppings alongside a bowl of tortilla chips.

Luckily, here near Roosevelt Island, we have lots of authentic Mexican restaurants that specialize in guacamole which will have you coming back for dip after dip, especially on National Guacamole Day on September 16. You’ll certainly need a second order of chips – or two – to finish off these delectable bowls!

Fresco’s Cantina, located at 12-14 31st Ave, Astoria which is eight minutes from your Octagon apartment, prides itself in using quality fresh ingredients that result in amazing dishes that will keep you coming back for more.

Restauranteur Brian Martinez has brought his take on authentic yet modern Mexican cuisine to Astoria. Known for its food fusions, amazing drinks and uncompromised service with attention to detail, this cozy and beautifully decorated little piece of food heaven is a new gem to the area.

Maya, located at 1191 1st Avenue, New York which is 13 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a lively restaurant and tequila bar serving Mexican classics and a bottomless margarita brunch.

Chef Richard Sandoval blends the earthy flavors of his native Mexico with worldly ingredients and creative cooking techniques to create the modern Mexican cuisine at Maya. Here, you can rediscover Mexican classics – tableside guacamole, tacos with authentic fillings and fresh-made tortillas – and savor the chef’s signature dishes.
