"A Central American restaurant featured in the 2020 Michelin Guide is one of the highlights of the "Savor the Bronx" Restaurant Week that's aimed to boost tourism in the borough." - NBC 4 New York

MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

"The Bronx is immensely proud of its heritage, but that doesn’t mean it resists change. In fact, this recruit fits in perfectly with the swiftly changing 'hood as it stands sentry at the base of a distinguished building on a prominent corner. The interior is sunny and welcoming with a gracious staff to boot; the menu is melting pot Central America featuring pupusas from El Salvador, baleadas from Honduras and enchiladas from Mexico. Go for a side of cheese-the cuajada is a soft curd variety offering a taste of Nicaragua. Tacos, like the enchilada with a spicy pork concoction, are simple but gratifying; while the heartier, fork-tender oxtail floating in an intense sauce with a hint of sweetness embodies the kitchen's complexity of flavors." - MICHELIN Guide

Good for: A low-key meal of Central American specialties in the heart of the Bronx’s Honduran community. Honduras’s signature snack, the Baleada, is something like a cross between a quesadilla and burrito.

At Seis Vecinos, a low-key and homey neighborhood spot in Melrose, they make thick, chewy wheat order tortillas. There are several options available, but the best is the original and most basic. All it takes is an ample but not overwhelming smear of refried black beans, some tangy sour cream, and a dose of salty, pungent queso duro, a Parmigianino-like cheese.
