Offered in single glasses, flights, and carafes, Anejo's tequila is about five quality notches up from your college-era variant. You can pick from styles including blanco extra anejo, and sotol, a Northern Mexican version made from a plant known as "The Desert Spoon." Tapas like short rib tacos and a much-hailed guacamole trio, plus larger plates, like the signature octopus dish, served with black bread, chorizo cream, and squash confit, more than adequately sate all tequila-induced appetites.
