Well a Mexican clan of folks whom have a place on Playa del Carmen, I am veggie these day so had only the two offerings (corn and peppers winning), but the meat looked and smelled great. The design while cool might not handle a rush well. Met the super nice owner (whom bought me a taco), and it looks like he brought all the staff with him....

Long Island City diner M. Wells isn’t open for dinner yet (still no liquor license!), and the spot’s current schedule is about to change. Starting September 7, the restaurant will cut back its breakfast hours and open at 10 AM instead of 7 AM every day except Monday, when it’s closed. Service lasts until 4 PM. The owner’s reason? As per its newsletter – “We need to sleep.”
The spot is also dishing out some wild mushrooms from foragers Gérard Mathar and Catherine Jacob, who do their thing on the Gaspé Peninsula in Québec. Not only will these ’shrooms be worked into dishes like slow-cooked rabbit saddle with handmade pappardelle, you can also purchase them along with other unique ingredients such as balsam fir and labrador tea to use at home (718-425-6917).
