From the moment I made the reservation at La Bodega Negra, I knew it was going to be a night of adventure. The dress code is strictly casual, and they mean it. Anything more than casual, you are going at your own risk. So leave that tailored jacket with Pocket Square at home, because you may not be allowed in!

As we approached the restaurant, we found ourselves in front of a sex shop. Staring at the Neon signs such as “Adult Video”, “Peep Show”, I was confused; did I get the address wrong? Thankfully after asking around we were assured that the restaurant is indeed inside the sex shop!

The entrance is small and dark with deep red and purple hues. Then a very polite host came and led us downstairs to the dining room. The dining room resembled a hacienda style basement cellar, with loud music and a really fun and friendly vibe!

Since this is a Mexican restaurant, they had great refreshing tequila cocktails and a selection of Mexican beers. For starters we had grilled corns topped with melted cheddar and Parmesan flakes, fresh herbs and crema Mexicana, something you can get in NYC, but I have not had similar taste in Europe! The fillet steak was very tender and the spicy sauce was all it needed. The chicken was also juicy and succulent. We closed out this rocking night with chocolate fondant and baked lemon cheesecake, which were creamy and delectable.

If you are looking for a different dining experience, La Bodega Negra is a fun place to go. Just don’t be scared of the Adult Video signs, there really is a Mexican restaurant inside!
