Cinco Restaurant Review

: Named Cinco for its five partners, this restaurant has already become a hit among locals in quiet Westchester. The dining room, home to a Thai restaurant for nearly 30 years, still has the outward appearance of a coffee shop, while inside the décor is an industrial blend of metal, hard woods and comfortable plush booths that surround a centerpiece bar. Once ready to indulge, diners can choose from a small selection of appetizers like Oaxacan wings or nachos. A long list of tacos follows, as well as a ceviche of fish and shrimp in a bright marinade of lemon, onion and jalapeño. Entrées include slow-cooked pork ribs that fall right off the bone, and free-range chicken in a thick mole sauce on top of herbed white rice. For dessert, you'll find housemade flan and churros with vanilla ice cream. Though wine and beer are on order, the cocktails are what shine most.
