Legendary Tex-Mex and 11 margaritas
Legendary Tex-Mex and 11 margaritas


Do your best to forget that Mi Cocina is a Dallas import when eating at the new Friendship Heights location (... those 11 margs will help). Already a Lone Star legend, this Tex-Mexer rocks vibrant Mexican art installations, accordion doors opening to the street, and a 90-person courtyard.

Soft corn tortillas burst with diced, grilled fajita beef and are served "Street Style", which in Chevy Chase means not getting your car valeted.

This Tex-Mex staple is a combo of a rolled cheese taco, beef taco, and cheese enchilada called "Roberto's", and, like Clemente, is a serious heavy hitter.

They don't scrimp on the flavor, but they do shrimp on it, specifically with this ceviche of mangos, avocado, cilantro and jicama.

The aged rib-eye beef will be what's for dinner. Also, it'll be paired with bean soup, guacamole, and pico.

And since it's located in luxe-shopping district The Collection, expect to see cougars taking a break from their busy lives of drinking at home with one of 13 different signature drinks, like this classic marg, or a frozen one topped with house-made sangria called the Mambo Taxi. Have (number) five yourself!
