Estrella Negra: I love this place. Its location makes it sort of under the radar, which is what I prefer lately. I've been coming here for years because the food is on point and the atmosphere is quirky yet no-fuss. The reason why this place is perfect for iftar is because each entree comes with a complimentary starter, which means their chicken pozole (soup) is included with your meal! I love any place that makes iftar easy for me, and this place does just that. Their service is also quick and reliable, so you don't have to stare drooling at other people's plates for too long.
Beatrix: What's not to love about Beatrix? They have incredible coffee, their food is clean and fresh, and they have enough options for any heart's desire. The ample juice options are definitely a plus, especially during Ramadan, and their soups are always delicious. Even though they change their soups seasonally, they always list what they're serving online, so you don't have to worry about showing up to the restaurant and finding out there's an unexpected ham or bacon addition (don't you hate when that happens?), and I'm pretty sure the soup is always either vegan or vegetarian. The rest of the food is really great as well. My favorites include kennebec fries, brussel sprouts, any of the salads and short ribs.
