Hands down the current coolest Mexican restaurant in New York City, Oxomoco is popular enough that tables here are hard to come by (they're usually taken up by designers and start-up owners). In the heart of Greenpoint, its aesthetics are just what you'd expect of a talk-of-the-town restaurant in 2019 - muted tones, a sexy, curved bar and plants trailing from the ceiling. Beyond the crowd and the setting, the menu is a serious standout. The antojitos are fun to share with a big group - stock up on chilli-lime popcorn and smoked mango to tide you over while you sip on Oaxacan Summers, a cocktail chock-full of coconut rum and pineapple. For mains, the grilled sea bass with mole and vegan beet "chorizo" tacos are non-negotiables.
