Teqa

Murray Hill embodies the spirit of New York City. A seemingly endless number of lifestyles and cultures live and work within its blocks. The area has a youthful energy that can be felt in the bars and restaurants that dot the neighborhood. But for everything Murray Hill has, until recently it lacked something. Teqa is the missing piece of the Murray Hill nightlife puzzle. A taquería and tequila bar that captures the electricity of the city, Teqa is built for the neighborhood it's proud to call home and serves modern latin cuisine that draws from influences around the globe, in an atmosphere featuring traditional and contemporary elements of Mexican style, with furnishings influenced by cultures that have shaped the 500-year-long history of tequila.

"My initial reaction is that for an afternoon brunch, the venue was very dark. It was a beautiful day but couldn't see it. The black curtains were closed shut.
The service was slow despite the lack of customers.
The chips from guac and the home fries were very greasy. For the steak and eggs, they used a very cheap cut of meat that was like rubber.
Really, the only good thing was that the drinks were mediocrely strong."

"the staff was friendly and the speciality margueritas were very good.
the only problem i had was with the music selection. it was more for
the night crowd then for a brunch crowd. but all in all my friends and
I had a nice dining experience!

"Firstly, the restaurants heater was broken but we stayed because we had a discount card. Waitress was very nice but not knowledgable or attentive, possibly new. The drinks and food were both delicious. However, the amount served is very small so we were hungry again a couple hours later."
