Just blocks away from Manhattan’s lively Union Square, our third New York location provides a warm and vibrant setting for our award-winning authentic Mexican cuisine. Designed by David Rockwell, the restaurant features architectural accents inspired by the late, famed Mexican architect, Luis Barragan. The internally illuminated electric-blue tiled water wall features cliff diver figurines and candles among the cascading water to separate the bar from the main dining room. Warm terracotta and yellow colors with hot pink accents are featured throughout the restaurant as well as traditional, one-of-a-kind Mexican crafts, fabrics and artwork. This combination creates the perfect backdrop for the festive atmosphere and innovative Mexican cuisine of Rosa Mexicano.

With its narrow yet spacious dining room, exposed brick walls, and banquette seating, Berimbau, a new addition to New York's Brazilian restaurant scene, boasts an antiquated yet urban atmosphere. What's more, their diverse menu of traditionally prepared Brazilian plates leaves patrons' palates pleased.<br /><br />There is a dish to please every member of your party. Portions are hearty, and the cuisine is indicative of Berimbau's renowned chef's ability to blend both traditional Brazilian flavors with New York diners' sensibilities. The caipirinhas are made to perfection and are a must to have. A variety of flavors is offered at this brazilian hot spot. For an evocative dining experience in the West Village, give this New York Brazilian restaurant a go. Berimbau, aptly named for a native Brazilian instrument, will indeed leave you singing for more.

Blue Water Grill, a Zagat favorite year over year, is a seafood and sushi dining destination in the heart of Union Square. Loyal guests and visitors alike are drawn to the former Metropolitan Bank space with chandeliers that illuminate the bi-level dining room, a café perfect for people-watching and a lower level lounge and dining room with live music 7 nights a week. The menu highlights the freshest seafood daily, with innovative offerings at the Sushi Bar and composed dishes coming out of the kitchen. Blue Water Grill is also known for Sunday Brunch overlooking the Union Square Greenmarket.
