Description

Village Voice's Description

Tequila and its close cousin mezcal are the focus of this cozy East Village cocktail den. The drinks were concocted by Death & Co. bartender Phillip Ward, so you know they're taken seriously. These aren't your standard margaritas; drinks like the Cinnsation (mezcal, mulled apple cider, cinnamon bark and Peychaud's Bitters) and the Cantinflas (mole bitters, tequila, mezcal, sherry and Grand Marnier) utilize fresh, homemade ingredients as well as top shelf liquor. If you want to get schooled in the ways of quality tequila and mezcal (which is made from the same agave plant as tequila), you can always order them in flights of three, which come with a complimentary sangrita. Soak up all that booze with small plates such as chorizo-stuffed shrimp and scallops or full plates like lobster ceviche and tamales filled with mole-braised chicken. The hacienda speakeasy vibe comes from the colorful Mexican tile, smiling Dia de los Muertos figurines and hidden-away stalls.— Keith Wagstaff

  • AskMen on 10/15/10

    Good menu of slick tequila and mezcal concoctions like Jacko's End (bonded applejack, mezcal, benedictine, peychaud bitters) with sharable fusion snacks to match.

    get the 'red ant river' if you're feeling sweet. and the 'slight detour' if you're feeling spicy. and the 'ocho' if you're feeling it...if you're feeling...

    One of our 10 best Manhattan bars-It helped rescue tequila from the realm of frat boys and body shots. And for this, we pay tribute to it.

    Come for the cocktails, stay for the chilaquiles. They're a traditional Mexican hangover dish, often served at weddings if the party is still going at sunrise. Get them and preempt your hangover.

    The Oaxaca Old-Fashioned is a modern classic and rightly so. Reposado tequila, mezcal, agave nectar, and Angostura bitters.
