In the tradition of the front room family run restaurants found in Mexico, Chef David Bank's Cocina Economica Mexico is a cozy, home-away from home for New Yorkers to enjoy what they have come to expect from the Bank's high quality/great value restaurants authentic, yet innovative cooking in a stylish, warm and intimate setting.

Chef Pedro Hernandez Perez (Sous Chef at Land Thai Kitchen since 2006) has prepared home-style meals for our restaurant crew to enjoy. Learning about Chef Pedro's cuisine and this wonderful tradition was inspiring to restaurant owner and mentor, Chef David Bank. He decided it was time to feature Chef Pedro and his delicious Mexican market to table cuisine. At Cocina Economica Mexico, the ever changing authentic menu will be inspired by market finds that capture the imagination of Chef Pedro and Chef David, prepared fresh each day.

David and Vanida Bank (Land Thai Kitchen, Recipe, and Pure Thai Cookhouse) look forward to welcoming you to the newest addition in their family of popular restaurants.
