Mexico City street foods are the muse of this Nolita newcomer. A menu of antojitos (South of the Border snacks) draws on every corner of the country: Mole-roasted beets rep Puebla in the east; jicama "tacos" filled with raw tuna, mango and habanero recall Guerrerense fare from the southwest; and fried crickets on blue-corn tostadas nod to the Oaxaca region down south. Countering a fiery, chili-packed menu, the cooling drinks program offers seasonal sangrias and beer cocktails.
