No doubt, this is taqueria food reinvented, but deliciously so. Why have pork carnitas enchiladas when you can try the duck carnitas version instead? Craving a new kind of taco? Give the BLT or roasted beet a second look. Then there’s the street-style hot dog torta, topped with chipotle ketchup and agave mustard. The other story here is the cocktails—not just the nine different margaritas, but also hybrid concoctions like the Madagascar old-fashioned (banana-infused bourbon, muddled orange and cherry, house bitters).
