Follow the Latin beat to Casa Bocado, a lively spot for Mexican cuisine on the Bowery. Chef Ivy Stark, of El Toro Blanco and Dos Caminos, is overseeing the kitchen. Look for festive dishes like Chipotle Beef Brisket Taquitos, Lobster Ceviche, Grilled Fish Tacos, and Crab Molotes with jumbo lump crab, chili-tinted masa and avocado salsa verde. Cocktails include the Papito (rum, kiwi, lemon and agave) and the Mamacita (tequila, pomegranate, lime and egg white).Add in lush greenery, curvy banquettes and full bar, and it’s party time!
