When we visit Manhattan, it’s easy to walk up to the nearest hot dog vendor and woof down our lunch or dinner or grab a bite to eat at a deli. Most times, however, I want to visit a restaurant that I cannot visit in my local area. Enter Dos Caminos Mexican Restaurant. The ambiance is stunning, the food better.
And there’s over 100 types of tequila.
Curiosity piqued? I thought so.

The Nitty Gritty: How’s the Food?
The Main Courses
Check out those surf and turf beauties. Grilled marinated skirt steak and Tecate battered rock shrimp with bacon guac and sriracha aioli.
From decadent desserts to decadent cocktails, Dos Caminos had the perfect ending to an amazing meal- dessert!
I love flan, and the Dos Caminos spin on the traditional Mexican dessert used almond milk and honey-roasted papaya was on the side. Delicious decadence, I say!
If you know what Tres Leches cake is, you know it’s a rich, creamy cake made from three types of milk. If you’ve ever had a piece, you’ve undoubtedly wanted another. If you’ve never tried it, here’s some encouragement. The cake is packed with vanilla pudding, and the fresh raspberries and just a hint of caramel crunch balance out the decadence of the condensed and evaporated milk.
You Did Say There’s Tequila, Right?
You betcha! With well over 100 types of tequila ranging from spicy to floral, Mr. Locke couldn’t leave without trying Casamigos– the fabulous creation from none other than George Clooney. Using a brick oven to roast the agave and an 80 hour fermentation process, the tequila actually supports the Sudanese Satellite Project. Smooth enough to not be buried with salt and lime, the tequila is perfect for sipping alone.
Not a straight out of the bottle tequila fan? Dos Caminos makes unusual and traditional margaritas as well. This beauty? A Grilled Grapefruit Margarita.
Ambiance and Service
Hungry? Just typing up this review is making me want to pack my suitcase and head back into the Big Apple for another visit! We had an amazing visit to Dos Caminos and I’d recommend it to any one, any where.
Disclosure: I was hosted by Dos Caminos and BR Guest Hospitality to give you fine folks the scoop on what makes this restaurant so great. I was not asked to state a particular point of view and all opinion are my own!
