Jose Malone’s Mexican Irish Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Co-owner Ray Wall likes Mexico and Mexican food. He is also an Irish musician. When he and Mary Ann Stafford opened the place in 2005 on a busy stretch of River Street abutting the Hudson River, the cross-cultural passions seemed only logical: create an adobe hacienda atmosphere, comfortable for dates or families. The food is anything but Tex-Mex; it’s the real cuisine you come to appreciate if you spend enough time in the non-touristy parts of Mexico --- fresh, vibrant and clean. The corned beef and cabbage is as good as the house-made tamales; the lamb shanks or lamb burrito are as appealing as the pollo en caldillo de jitomate (chicken cakes in a tomato broth). Vegetarian dishes follow protocols: separate fryer, flat top, utensils, ingredients style-specific. There are good house-made desserts such as an apple empanada and banana chimichanga. The restaurant also offers a broad tequila portfolio as one might expect.
