Venue Info

In this dark, clubby restaurant that's just a few steps down from Second Ave you can find an excellent bar program based on tequilas and mezcals that utilizes rare Mexican herbs, ingredients like corn juice and agave, and even insects, ground to powders and used as flavoring agents. The kitchen is equally inventive, serving dishes like guacamole with ant salt, zippy ceviches, and goat braised in avocado leaf.
