Gitano in NYC is a pop up restaurant inspired by Gitano Tulum in Mexico. Their idea was to bring the Tulum Jungle to the Concrete Jungle of NYC.
Make reservations via OpenTable or else you will have a long wait to even get in the place!
When I stepped inside Gitano I felt like I was on vacation. I was surrounded by lush palm trees 🌴 and beautiful people.
We sat by the bar which has a big disco bar at the center of it.
We ordered the:
Jungle Fever 😝 consists of Gem and Bolt, chili, lime, and cilantro. It had a great kick to it. 🌶
Gitano Margarita Montelobos, lime, cucumber, and rosemary. It was very refreshing. 🥒
We ordered the Guacamole which was very tasty and fresh.
The special of the night was Carne Asada. It was extremely tasty 🥩 with chimichurri sauce and shishito peppers 🌶
There are several seating areas spread throughout the restaurant and garden area where you can sit, drink, and lounge. It starts getting very loungey in the evening. Lots of people hanging out and sipping on cocktails.
