When first walking in, we thought we were entering just another Mexican takeout place, but after spending a few minutes looking around and chatting with the husband and wife team behind Dorado, we realized that this was something special. It isn't often that you see a large glass dispenser with homemade Sangria on the counter at a takeout Mexican place, or a variety of sauces to choose from to put on your freshly made tacos. As described by Rachel and Michael Brau, Dorado has "gourmet food at fast food prices. " Right around the corner from NYU, the restaurant has a constant flow of young people. There are a few tables for seating, so we placed our order and sat and enjoyed some tacos, including a vegetarian option and, of course, we had to share the guacamole. We were all quite satisfied as we moved on across 12th Street.
