At Olla, Coyo Taco's executive chef Scott Linquist is tapping into a different skillset and sharing his love of authentic Mexican cuisine beyond tacos and street food. Named after the large clay pots used to serve the family-style dishes, Olla takes diners on a gastronomic journey through Mexico's regions. There's mole from Oaxaca, a roasted pig dish made in the traditional Yucatan style and four iterations of enchiladas that represent the bounty of ingredients found throughout the country. Drinks echo the menu's authenticity, so expect top-shelf mescal, housemade margaritas and sangrita served alongside shots of tequila. Linquist also borrowed from Mexican folklore for the look of the space, commissioning local artist Juan Manuel Rozas to create a mural inspired by Mexican painter Diego Rivera.
