Hola,

Discovering Mexican Wine



by Everett Hutt


I recently returned from a wonderful two-week vacation in Mexico. It was my first time there as a tourist, and I thoroughly enjoyed discovering the diversity of the country from the hustle of Mexico City to the vibrant traditions of Chiapas and the ancient cultures of the Mayas in the Yucat√°n. One of the most enjoyable parts of the trip was the food and drink.

From dishes traditionally associated with Mexico (burritos, fajitas, empanadas), to more regional dishes we sampled (cochinita pibil, relleno negro, poc-chuc), everything was as good as I had hoped. I also enjoyed the variety of Mexican beers, from the ubiquitous Corona to lesser-known brands such as Modelo Especial, Pacifico and Superior to name just a few. The real surprise, however, was the discovery that Mexico produces wine — and that some of it is quite good.

Your comment:
So we scored a late night sitter and decided to check this place out for some appetizers (we weren't really that hungry) and drinks. I was not disappointed in anything and I'm stoked to have this swanky joint within walking distance.

Nice ambiance, a bit posh without being stuffy. Menu looked pretty good, we ordered the lamb lollipops and calamari to snack on; the lamb was deeeeslish and the calamari was okay. Good selection of wine by the bottle, but not so much by the glass but oh well. They did have a pretty good selection of Mexican wines which was pretty neato. The best part about this place was the outdoor patio area with firepits and comfy lounge chairs, we made ourselves comfortable and stayed quite easily until last call! The staff was very attentive and friendly. Definitely coming back for dinner soon!
