At the suggestion of a super secret awesome celebrity nacho lover, we dined at El Parador Cafe in Murray Hill. The place was swanky and a romantic date night spot. But there is only room in my heart for one love, nachos.
After a series of recommendations from Amy Cao and others, I decided I needed to go to Baby Bo’s and get hot and heavy with a plate of nachos. With the holidays around the corner, a lot of the Nacho Gang is all booked up preparing, but Maraysa was able to join me.
Today, I am officially putting Yelp on notice. You’ve been warned before (Greenwich Street Tavern). I keep trusting you, so when I read, “The nachos are phenomenal (around $8) and are perfectly piled so you get a little bit of goodness on every chip. And, guac comes with the nachos – none of this pay extra for guac business,” I believed you.
With the skies blue and a mild wind flowing, I decided to push a little north in Manhattan. We made it up to 27th Street, just across the way from Rodeo. I had seen on their online menu, nachos for about $5 and I was incredulous, and rightfully so. When I got there, I noticed that their standard nachos were no more than chip, cheese, beans.
I was a little early and decided that I would fully and definitely have them add guacamole, sour cream, pico de gallo, and jalapenos. Shortly after, Ali appeared ready for her first nacho night.
For this Wednesday’s nacho retreat, we lost Sara, and also trekked just slightly northward. We made it to Rodeo, at 23rd and 3rd. This place’s interior is important to mention. It has the makings of a Western Rodeo bar, complete with a giant buffalo above the bar. I read that the nachos were very good here.
