When the Mexican-inspired Coa Mexican Eatery & Tequileria opened in 2011, it filled a niche in the hood that badly needed to be. Taking its name from a device used in agave harvesting, Coa presents artful riffs on south-of-the-border classics. Be forewarned: If you're craving slop Mexican, keep walking; Coa's mole is served sans tortillas with crispy kale and fragrant rice and beans. Enchiladas verde are stuffed with chicken, cauliflower, and cheese, then smothered in a cream sauce that hits the right balance of rich and verdant. Expect little touches, like salsa speckled with hominy and gluten-free tostones filled with green plantains. And with Coa's tarty $5 house margaritas coming in at less than 100 calories, ordering a second round is a no-brainer.
