Ziggy’s

OPENED973 DAYS AGO

Ziggy’s, a mezcal and mariscos bar, has just opened on 2nd Avenue with a beach-shack vibe – just what we need now the colder months are well and truly upon us.

New York’s Mexican food scene has seen some serious contenders upping the city’s game over recent years, however, it’s Mexican-seafood-game has only just begun. When the owners of Los Tacos No.1 opened up their new spot Los Mariscos inside the Chelsea Market not too long ago we jumped for joy and now, Ziggy’s are getting a bite of the action too.

The menu is obviously focused around Mexican and Mexican-inspired dishes but the star of the show here is the seafood. The chef is Juan Juarez, who worked at Vinegar Hill House and he’s curated a menu featuring platters filled with oysters, clams, crab claws, scallops and mussels, a Pacific seafood cocktail and there’s even a $1 happy hour for oysters on Mondays.

Cocktails are curated by co-owner, Noah Arenstein, and feature tiki-style offerings like pain killers and Mai Tais – all made with mezcal of course. There is also a ‘Scorpion Bowl’ for large groups available for $30.

Located on the Upper East Side, Ziggy’s offers an awesome atmosphere for large groups with its beach-shack vibes and group-scale food portions. The restaurant is large and features 110 seats. If you’re looking for some place to visit to escape the freezing cold that is the New York winter then head here for some much needed fun in the ‘sun’.
