Empellon Cocina
Empellon goes east and gets refined

The second venture from the Empellon team is conceptually a step in the upscale direction, which makes it an easy pick for our Favorite 5 Date Spots. A curvaceous, white brick interior (complete with a giant blue rooster mural) sets the mood for shareable Mariscos (mezcal-cured ocean trout w/ roe & cream cheese), Quesos (lobster, fried tomato, and Tetilla cheese), and Small Plates ranging from bay scallops w/ rutabaga and brown butter mole, to prime beef rib eye cap w/ puffed tendon and menudo, perfect for those who want to start livin' la vida loca.
