The vibrant colors featured in Mexican décor mimic the country’s cuisine, incorporating yellows from corn, greens from avocados, and reds from the faces of chefs who ingested too much habanero.

Bright sunshine and cerulean hues pop from a wall of exposed brick in Patron Mexican Grill, where chefs mix up a menu of authentic South of the Border sundries the old-fashioned way. Dress corn tortilla chips up in a molcajete-mixed fabric of house-specialty guacamole, available as a fiery tuxedo of classic onion, cilantro, and serrano pepper, or a fruit-studded ballroom gown with pineapple, pomegranate, and cucumber. Main events include the Yucatan-syle cochinita pibil, with slow-roasted pork marinated in achiote sauce and wrapped in a banana leaf, and paella made from traditional Mexican seafood including mussels, clams, shrimp, and octopus. Glass after glass of wine, sangria, or house margaritas hover over the feast like balloons over a Helium Day parade, and flan or sponge cake trail sweetly behind like a line of marshmallow ducklings.
Patron Mexican Grill
The vibe at Patron Mexican Grill is decidedly party-like—happy hours, bingo nights, and bottomless sangria and margarita Mondays. It all makes for an appetizing atmosphere in which to enjoy a sizzling menu of Mexican favorites, such as grilled-chicken quesadillas, cilantro steak tacos, and a braised pork shank served over creamy poblano rice. Though both locations serve dinner, only the 43rd Street hub serves lunch, brunch, and fajitas that exist outside of time.
