Hell's Kitchen Restaurant Review

: One of the crop of eateries that is making this area a dining destination rather than the home of tolerable pre-theater prix-fixes, Hell's Kitchen serves nuevo Mexicano in presentations that look as heavenly as they taste. Try the pan-seared halibut with grilled chayote, sweet plantain purée and salsa verde, or the duck confit empanadas with cranberry mole and pico de gallo. At the bar is a sassy singles fiesta fueled by topnotch fruit-flavored house cocktails such as the Wajito.
