Upscale Mexican food?!?! It does exist. Serenata has been my latest obsession for lunch or dinner & drinks after a long day at work. This Contemporary Mexican restaurant is tucked away in the basement level of a building in Chelsea at 17th and 6th Ave. I think what initially sparked my interest is $5 margaritas and sangrias for happy hour. Call me a lush if you want, but I am a sucker for a great happy hour. The food at Serenata is not only pleasing to the eye, but will awakens your taste buds.
This restaurant is owned by Besim Kukaj which is the restaurateur behind 9 other establishments such as Intermizzo and La Carbonara. Knowing his experience and his time spent in hospitality it seems like he has the equation to success down.
Serenata has Happy Hour on Sunday - Thursday from 4pm - 8pm, and on Friday - Saturday from 4pm - 7pm. If you want to catch them prior to happy hour I would encourage you trying their prix fixe lunch that starts at $9.
Nothing is better than eating, but eating good and saving money. There is currently a Pulsed deal for brunch that allows a party of 2 to get an entree and unlimited for 60 minutes for only $29. I believe the time to purchase this deal is nearing it's end and I would hop on it. Even without the Pulsd deal their pricing for brunch is reasonable. $15 entrees and $10 unlimited mimosas or bellinis for 60 minutes is perfect brunch that won't break the bank.

Serenata is on this list and the first time you visit you get 30% cash back on YOUR ENTIRE BILL! Each time thereafter you are able get 10%. Awesome thing about Groupon+ is you receive the cash back within days.
