A true Murray Hill hidden gem!  I've walked past this place a thousand times and I always wanted to try it.  Well tonight I did and it knocked my socks off!  I had the mole poblano and it was absolutely exceptional.  Perfectly cooked chicken with mouth watering mole sauce and a generous sized portion.  Each bite was truly better than the next.  My brother had a chimichanga and he described it as "delicious!"  The staff was friendly and very attentive.  My water was filled immediately after I finished it each time(which I very much appreciate).  The atmosphere was dimly lit and quiet enough for a nice date.  There were also some larger tables that served groups.  If you're walking down 34th searching for traditional and contemporary Mexican cuisine, walk no further!
I've been coming here since 1983. I'm going to keep on coming back until they get it right!!!
I can't believe I've lived in NYC for 20 years and have never eaten in El Parador Cafe! Tonite, the streak was broken when I dined here with my nephew and his girlfriend. I loved the ambiance as soon as I walked in the front door. Dim lighting, quiet music playing in the background. Service was perfect from start to finish. We had a pitcher of sangria (white wine), guacamole, fish tacos, chimichanga and the quesadillas which were delicious! Special shout out to Juan Jose and Andrew who were professional, friendly and attentive! I highly recommend this restaurant - they really have perfected the dining experience from start to finish! Reservations recommended as they place fills up quickly. We'll definitely be back!
