Better in most ways, worse in some (like, say, ingredient quality).

After a very unpleasant trip to Astoria last night, which was an obligation, decided to venture into my childhood LIC neighborhood. Managed to secure two bar/window seats at the "very difficult to get into" Casa Enrique. Place was packed when we arrived at 8pm and the same when we left at 1030pm.
By far the best Mexican food I've had in NYC. It has vastly improved over the last three plus years. The Guac was outstanding as were the crab tacos and the pastor. Nice small wine list, great margaritas - according to Peggy. The service was friendly and professional. Food came out when it was supposed to arrive.
Highly recommended. Go before Amazon forces them to raise prices. Dinner for two all in (including a bottle of wine and two drinks) - $160, great value.
Why are LIC gas prices 40 cents a gallon higher than Brooklyn and Staten Island? My old neighborhood is not affordable any more - should have kept my mother's house.
Dinner only - open for brunch weekends. Yearning to try some of their listed egg dishes.
