Pik Nik Restaurant

Pik Nik Restaurant is a colorful Mexican restaurant that was on 10th Avenue just steps from 5th Avenue. It has recently moved to 10th Street between 20th and 25th Avenues. Here you can get friendly service and a good value meal. They offer a large menu for such a small place. There are a lot of traditional Mexican dishes and seafood items on the menu. The staff is very friendly, and the owner speaks English. He is often there and will answer any question you have about eating and can make recommendations for you.

If you are a tourist walking on 5th Avenue you can pop around the corner to here and have a better experience from this small restaurant rather than some of the more tourist trap places on 5th Avenue.
