    Never thought I'd say these words: peanuts + 🍓 (& shishito 🌶) to start, then share the green molé & carnitas. Wine list is 😏 - ask to taste first. The decor tho 💅🏻💅🏻💅🏻

    Great cocktails! Fun place to hang out but closes relatively early on weekend nights.

    Get the carnitas, try the shishito peppers. They have a grilled vegetables in green mole sauce which is a vegetarian. A great selection of cocktails.

    Solid new spot! Don't miss the black dip, roasted eggplant with mojama, lamb and coconut rice. Service was a bit slow but friendly. They ran out of dessert so I'll have to come back.

    Vegan Caesar is easily the best thing on the dinner menu. Also great: green mole w/ feta & roasted veg and the "black bean" dip. Pro-tip: Ask for a pitcher of any cocktail (on menu or off).

    One of the best Mexican meals in the city: not ur typical dishes but everything was awesome and well priced. Green mole w veggies was a highlight, carnitas are wow but a bit too orangey

    Excellent for brunch. I got the chorizo and egg breakfast tacos and loved them. Most importantly: pay close attention to the specials—we had some Mexican chocolate babka that was So. Freaking. Good.

    The side meat is on point. Like a little flank steak ready to get in your mouth. Not a late night spot--yet.

    The carnitas here are the real deal. Tender chunks of pork with crisp skin intact, served with warm, homemade tortillas. Damn.

    Try the "black bean dip" - it's actually white bean and squid ink! Come with friends and try a few different dishes. The entrance is easy to miss - it's behind the old Winnie's storefront.

    Try the green molé, vegan Caesar and plantain cream pie. A very cool and friendly spot for a night out.

    The pollo asado is similar to a Peruvian rotisserie chicken, but the sauce is on a higher level
