Time Out says

Booze is the name of the game at celebrity chef Mike Isabella’s latest, which debuted in July 2015. Though the Mexican street food-inspired food menu is solid—with offerings like barbacoa lamb torta and smoked carnitas tacos—the bar menu is nearly twice as long. Can’t decide? You can’t go wrong with a margarita (available by the pitcher) or something from the tiki section.
