I’m about to share what, in my estimation, is the greatest happy hour in this city. I know! I have no idea what you did to deserve this either. No matter, though – let’s get in there.
Cabrito, which is Spanish for baby goat, is owned by the same people behind Fatty Crab and Fatty ‘Cue and it shows: the food there is ambitious and spicy and so very delicious. There are also a few unique and worth-the-price cocktails as well as a full tequila bar.
I want that.
But if you stop in between the magical hours of 4-7 pm during the week or 11 pm – 2 am on the weekends (!), all of this glory can be had for not more than a fistful of cash. Eight bucks will get you “Mexican Advil,” which is a shot of El Jimador Reposado Tequila and a Tecate. If you are broker than that, feel free to indulge in a Dos Equis draft for $3. Cabrito’s excellent margaritas are half what they would usually run, and there are food specials too: tasty tacos made out of tongue or pork belly for $3 each and churros and chocolate for $5 are prime examples. I’ll take six.Happy Hour at Cabrito 50 Carmine Street (between Bedford & Bleecker) [West Village, Manhattan] 4-7 pm, Monday through Friday; 11 pm-2 am, Friday, Saturday Photos Courtesy of: Cabrito
