Besito, Roslyn, NY

Besito Restaurant Review

: This Roslyn eatery offers authentic, classic Mexican fare. Appetizers include a ceviche of the day served with plantains as well as some standbys like empanadas and flautas. Main dishes are divided into tacos, enchiladas and platos fuertes. Tacos are presented in a cast-iron skillet; a traditional al pastor version comes with pineapple and pork. Many of the platos fuertes are not your typical Tex Mex offerings, such as the stuffed poblano peppers, garlic-chile shrimp, and tortilla pie with seafood. Cocktails, margaritas and a large selection of blanco, reposado and aƱejo tequilas are on offer; a tequila flight is a good option for those looking to try several varieties.
