Sizzling Fajitas
Great Dishes and Dancing at Cafe Iguana

Sizzling skillets fill the room with the scent of chargrilled steak. Bottles of Modelo Negro clink together. Above, a painted flamenco dancer swirls her skirts. At Cafe Iguana, diners dive into authentic Mexican fare, club-hoppers sashay up to the Latin Dance Club, and theater-goers sidle up to the bar for freshly muddled Mojitos.

Conveniently located on the northern edge of New York City's Theater District, Café Iguana offers an oasis from the neon lights and claustrophobic crowds of midtown. A mahogany bar welcomes newcomers and long-time patrons to the dining room, fashioned in an old Mexican style with burgundy brickwork and oil paintings. If you're here for dinner, choose from a menu boasting avocado fries, blue crab cakes, and Tex-Mex fajitas. Seafood lovers can indulge in Red Snapper Veracruz and the Ensenada Fish Tacos. Café Iguana offers fresh fruit margaritas and minty mojitos in 25 flavors, including: spicy diablo, chocolate, coconut, and passion fruit.

After sunset, head downstairs to the intimate dance floor pumping with Reggae, House, and Hip Hop. During the week, swing your hips with glow-in-the-dark hula-hoops as your reflection bounces off mirrored walls. Or exercise your grace and balance in the Latin Dance Club upstairs that spins classic Salsa, Merengue, and Bachata beats. No cover charged. All are welcome!
