ABOUT US

Three Texans and a New Yorker meet in a bar...

For years, southern transplants have begged for REAL Tex-Mex in NYC. No more tiny, corn tortilla tacos or $15 guacamole. Make way for fluffy, homemade flour tortillas, Tejas-sized vats of queso and mounds upon mounds of melted cheese.

 

You cried out. We listened. Not another fancy, overpriced Mexican restaurant. This is the friendly, neighborhood home-cooking, tequila and beer, East Village-charming Tex-Mex experience you’ve been craving.

 

Welcome home.

$20 Drink Special Bracelets

• All bracelet proceeds will directly benefit Texas relief efforts
• Donations will be collected and sent directly to Rockport, Houston and surrounding affected areas
• A team will be available to pick up donations that cannot be delivered to the restaurant

While physical donations will be accepted, what is most needed right now is money to help fund relief efforts on the ground! Before you go out and purchase donations please consider putting that money into the fundraiser at YouCaring so it can be used for specific needs as they arise.

If you feel strongly about donating tangible goods here is a list of needs we received recently:

• Bug spray
• Damp rid
• Particle masks
• Hard hats
• Work boots

Please avoid donating clothing, canned goods, water and medicine. These items are fully stocked as of now.

We can’t wait to see you all and appreciate your support and willingness to DONATE LOCAL!

Have you heard?

No sign in the sky will tell you where The Mockingbird is nested. Just look for the silhouette on the door in the underbelly of New York’s indelible East Village.

Through that door lays an eclectic bar and lounge serving up tequila-centric cocktails with the gritty swank of a classic Manhattan speakeasy. Built by the hands of local artists, The Mockingbird provides a cozy, yet untamed atmosphere suited for every occasion, from first dates to birthday parties to private events.
