Dinner at Crema in NYC

I went to Crema for Restaurant Week dinner with Elena.  It was a really great deal - three courses from their regular menu of your choosing.  Unfortunately some of the flavor combos didn't work for me, but it was a good deal with good service so can't complaint too much.  I wouldn't come back though.
Taquitos de Chilorio - Slow-cooked pork mini tacos chile ancho, jalapeño vinegar, chipotle-cilantro drizzle and crema.  Elena seemed to enjoy.  I had a bite and the meat was tasty

Ceviche de Pulpo y Camaron - Grilled african octopus, poached shrimp, mango citrus marinated,pickled onion, jalapeno, avocado.  The mango was very over powering.  Usually ceviche is in a kind of broth versus this thick goop.  I couldn't even finish because the flavor was too sweet :(

Callo de Hacha con Chile Morita y Mango - Dry scallops pan seared in chile morita, zucchini-sweet corn cake, avocado mousse, mango pico de gallo, chipotle aioli.  Elena got this and seemed to enjoy it all.  I enjoyed the corn cake a lot

Tacos de Carne Asada - Adobo-marinated grilled skirt steak, black beans served in corn tortillas.  Very tasty but not super memorable

Churros - Cinnamon dusted churros, chocolate and cajeta dipping sauce.  Loved both sauces

Pastel de Tres Leches - Sponge cake soaked in three milks coconut caramel mango syrup dulce de leche ice cream. Great flavors but we were both pretty stuffed
