Festive live music fills the laid-back yet upscale interior of Teqa, a contemporary Mexican restaurant that flourishes with cozy leather booths, a cluster of industrial chandeliers, and large windows that face the bustling streets of the Murray Hill neighborhood. Festival goers can ring in the Mexican holiday while snacking on the eatery’s crisp chips and piquant salsa, sipping a zesty margarita, and dancing to the music of the live band.
Tables handcrafted from Guadalajara wood mix with marble accents and industrial lighting, echoing the blend of traditional and modern found in Teqa’s cuisine. The eatery—the first of its kind in a neighborhood dotted with classic pubs and bars—boasts a menu of Mexican comfort cuisine, such as carne asada tacos and nachos, along with contemporary offerings in the form of grilled chipotle shrimp salad and duck torta. The bar follows suit, whipping up signature margaritas with innovative ingredients such as hibiscus, rose, and cucumber and cracking open classic Mexican beers including Corona, Dos Equis, and Negra Modelo.
