Expert review of Ofrenda

An authentic Mexican eatery in a busy stretch of the West Village.

Ofrenda means 'gift' in Spanish and the owners of Ofrenda have gifted the village with authentic Mexican fare in a cozy and elegant setting. The 46-seat cocina serves flavorful food, showcasing the cuisine of Mazatlan, where the chef is from. It's one of my favorite Mexican spots downtown.

Food and drink: 

It's modern Mexican fare and top quality. A variety of fresh salsas are available. The cocktails mainly feature tequila and mezcal. Mexican beers and sodas are also on the list. 

Recommended dishes: 

Brunch features a bunch of great egg dishes such as fried eggs with ham and green peas. I like to head there for dinner and enjoy the aguachile de Mazatlan, which is shrimp carpaccio, cucumbers and serrano pepper. I also like the cauliflower fricasee and grilled Mexican squash, they are choice side orders. 

Ambience: 

The interior is warm, mainly due to the earthy tones used, but even more so for the wonderful crowd. This is a place to go to get away from the pretentious hoards. 

Service: 

The service is excellent. The staff are waiting patiently for your next request and the food comes out of the kitchen quickly.

Location: 

In a busy part of the village. There are a bunch of boisterous restaurants and bars in the area and the Christopher Street subway stop is a block away.

Price advice: 

No dish on the menu is more than $20, making this a very affordable place to take the parents or a date.
