Bib Gourmand • Inspectors’ favourites for good value

Flatiron favorite Cosme may be doted on by diners and critics alike, but nobody puts Atla in a corner. The delightful little sibling on Lafayette St. stands proudly on its own two feet, and if the dazzling design—defined by black-and-white tiles, tiny wood tables and a bustling, worldly scene—makes it feel like a contemporary Mexican terrace, well that’s the point. First things first: order a mezcal from the massive selection, then settle in to peruse the list of small plates. A party of two could easily sample every delicious morsel on the menu, but Chef Daniela Soto-Innes really rocks the Arctic char tostada; quinoa, yogurt and tomatoes done pico de gallo-style; farro and quail egg meatballs; as well as the spectacular chicken enchiladas.
