A.G. Kitchen: The name comes from the fact that A.G. Kitchen is designed to look like you’re dining in Food Networker Alex Garcia’s actual kitchen, and apparently there you'll find personally-designed cooking materials, cookbooks galore, Cuban-inspired dishes and vats upon vats of delicious liquor getting infused. The bar (and its cabanas) is separated from the pastel-hued dining area where you can get tableside guac in three flavors (standard, pineapple & pomegranate, or “firecracker” papaya, $9-$12). The rest of the menu is humbly highlighted by a troika of ceviches ($11-$13), the “ultimate” paella ($27 for “uno,” or $45 if you got a date) and NYC’s “best” cubano ($16). For the complainers, there are more American-esque eats, like a grilled cheese with dipping soup ($8) and nine burgers ranging from normal to WTF ($12-$17). And those vats of infused liquors—what else would they be used for but a cocktail menu heavy on both fruity sweet and peppery spicy, most notably the "Upper Westy," a cilantro daiquiri and the "Sorel Loser", a berry and cinnamon concotion ($12). The “ultimate,” NYC’s “best"—call it whatever A.G.’s wants you to!
