When I opened the new Italian Vogue my mouth almost dropped to the floor.
New York's own Rodeo Bar & Grill featured in an editorial shot by Steven Meisel!
You don't understand, I have been going over to 27th and 3rd Avenue regularly (almost weekly!) for 20 years. They have the best fajitas in New York, without question, and I might add, a very good frozen margarita.
Actually the first time Carine Roitfeld called and offered me an assignment I was around the corner from Rodeo so I went there to celebrate. I sat almost exactly where Agnyess is the photo below.
Garance also loves this place, it's represents real Americana to her, a bit of Texas right here in Manhattan. It also happens to be right around the corner from The Lexington Avenue Armory where Marc Jacobs fashion shows are held so we try to make it to Rodeo before or after the show, it's now become a fashion week tradition.
So do yourself a favor. The next time you want great Tex-Mex try Rodeo Bar & Grill, it is in no way fashionable, but I guarantee you will have a great time.
If you want great AND fashionable Mexican food try Rocking Horse Cafe on 8th Ave at 19th Street. It is the local restaurant I eat at the most when I'm home in New York and everything is perfect, including the margaritas.
