Happy Hour at Ofrenda

The only thing better than having summer Fridays is having someone to enjoy them with. Last week I spent a balmy Friday afternoon off with an old friend at Ofrenda.

This Mexican restaurant offers daily happy hour deals from 4-7pm, which include regular margaritas for $6, flavored margaritas for $7, beer for $4, and wine for $6. Definitely pretty great prices, especially for the convenient West Village location.

When I visited the restaurant a few times last year for happy hour, the service wasn't great (as in we actually needed to get up and flag someone down to get menus, order, and close out), but this time I was pleasantly surprised with our server Guillermo, who checked in with us at all the right times, and the fact that the guacamole is now served in a bowl instead of a plate (makes for easier scraping at the end) made the experience even better.

My friend and I chose to sit inside, but we did enjoy the breeze coming in from all the open French doors. Seriously, this is the perfect spot to take advantage of the incredible weather we've been having in NYC.

Cucumber margarita and prickly pear magarita, $7 each
I thought I was given the wrong order when I saw this pink/purple-hued drink, but it turns out that prickly pears are in fact this shade. This was delicious and not overly syrupy. Margaritas are definitely the way to go on Friday afternoons.

Chips and guacamole, $7
A larger serving than I remembered it being before, and the subtle kick in this buttery guacamole was the best. The chips were served warm and freshly fried. Mmm...
