Great place but need more transparency re: Groupons. Ours referred to a $ amount but when you get there, it was one shared appetizer and two entrees, plus two drinks. Best to be explicit in the Groupon ad, sorta bait-and-switch otherwise. We ordered drinks first, before even looking at the food menu, thinking they'd be covered under the dollar amount. They weren't. So we ended up with two extra drinks in effect, not the worst thing that ever happened -- but $20 poorer, and unplanned at that. That's not optimum public relations for the restaurant.

Thanks for a great dinner!

What You'll Get


Comfort food, like a front door, offers security from a world of pushy broccoli salesmen and rampaging turduckens. Defend your home turf with today's Groupon: for $30, you get dinner for two, including an upscale southwestern-style appetizer, two entrees, and two glasses of wine, at El Ay Si in Long Island City (up to an $80 value, valid for any appetizer, entree, and wine). Dinner is served Wednesday through Sunday.

El Ay Si unveils a selection of southwestern-American comfort food with Latin influences, served in a rustic hacienda-style restaurant topped by rough-hewn wooden rafters and gleaming chandeliers. Dining companions can divvy up an appetizer, such as the jalapeño sweet corn fritters with honey ($7) or grilled cured spanish chorizo ($10), bursting with sweet-salty flavors and creative ideas for concept albums. Sink fangs into main dishes such as pulled-pork tacos al pastor, a medley of tangy pork with caramelized onions and grilled pineapple ($14), or sit back as skirt-steak fajitas with avocado, peppers, and pico de gallo ($26) dance across palates in spicy staccato rhythms. Piquant Spanish and Latin-American wines dominate the wine list, which also features cameos from French vouvray, Californian sparkling wine, and, by contractual obligation, comic-book icon Stan Lee.

About 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.
