Cantina Royal

Williamsburg
Mexico City native Felipe Mendez, one of the founders of La Superior, is behind this 42-seat Mexican cantina around the corner. The simple tavern—outfitted with patterned wallpaper and a massive, seven-foot-long crystal chandelier—sports a traditional menu of tapas and shareable plates. Expect 16 house-made salsas and dishes like tostada de pulpo (octopus with spicy chipotle sauce on a crispy shell) and corneta pato (a long crispy taco stuffed with duck confit). Serious sippers, take note: Twenty-five artisanal, small-batch tequilas and mescals (including Pierde Almas and Antiguo Herradura) are on display behind the large oak bar, which also features six South of the Border beers on tap.
