about us

Veteran restaurateurs & Mexican food enthusiasts Keith Reichenbach and his brother Willy were surprised when they discovered there was no authentic Mexican eating experience to be found in Midtown NYC. Rather than complain, however, the famous "Beer Brothers" took this as a challenge. The food & beverage specialists turned their prodigious energies toward work, focusing the cooking education gleaned from forays into the streets of Mexico City and Playa del Carmen into designing the dishes they craved to meet New York’s urgent need.

Because authentic enchiladas, tacos, guacamole & margaritas also required an authentic setting, Habanero Blues was born. Here you can enjoy the sounds, sights and thrilling cuisine of Mexico City in an exciting atmosphere. Avail yourself of tantalizing cocktails, craft mezcal & tequila while snacking on the most authentic street style Mexican cooking in Manhattan. ¡Buen Provecho!

  • “I went with a large group to Habanero Blues today. We heard that they have just opened and as a New Yorker and very picky, i always want to try new places. The place is amazing! Not only they were able to acommodate the group, the service was execptional. The ambiance and decor are amazing. The food is delicious. I do know a lot about Latin dishes and all details of its culinary. Habanero was such a great experience. 5 atars and we are going back many times for sure!”
