El Ay Si

Fetching artwork pairs with gritty brick walls and decorative graffiti in El Ay Si’s interior, where diners study an eclectic menu of Southwestern comfort cuisine. Fusing traditional recipes with international ingredients, they craft pulled-pork tacos al pastor with grilled pineapple, as well as slow-cooked pressed pork belly with caramelized apples. Brews such as Saranac India Pale Ale or the Mexican Modelo Especial pilsner complement hearty dishes as diners submerge spoons into chocolate-bourbon pecan pie or cherry crumble crowned with vanilla ice cream.

Reviews

Bottom line: the food is so, so tasty. And the wait staff was super friendly and responsive.

The hole-in-the-wall, graffiti juxtaposed with chandelier type ambiance is cozy and quaint while lively and fun, and the food is great.
