Amidst the revitalized apartment buildings and the local restaurants
that still serve cuchifritos at 1950’s styled lunch counters within Spanish
Harlem lies a bistro that manages to combine the old and the new in
a subdued yet impressive manner. Itzocan Bistro, located on a quiet corner, charms you the moment you walk through its doors with aged oak tables and exposed brick walls. The food is exquisitely prepared to appease the eyes as well as the palate. The goat cheese flan simply melts in your mouth with the first bite.
Another dish of note (pictured above) is the ancho chile rubbed chicken breast. Complementing these wonderful dishes is a wine list that displays choice selections from Spanish and Latin American vineyards. If you’re looking for a quiet and sophisticated eatery that will catapult you to another mood, Itzocan Bistro is an inspired choice.
