It might be in Little Italy, but this spot brings modern Mexican cuisine, courtesy of chef Javier Plascencia. Armed with an open kitchen, Bracero serves up small plates and larger entrees like shrimp sopes, carne asada, and short rib tomahawk as well as pickings from a full Baja seafood crudo bar. And with the restaurant’s commitment to honoring its Mexican heritage, you can bet there’s a killer tequila program with a well-rounded selection of around 20 tequilas, 20 mezcals, a variety of bacanoras, raicillas, sotols, and one of the best tequila-based craft cocktail lists in SD.
