Cala
review by Daria Frum

In a converted Hayes Valley garage, Mexico City–born chef Gabriela Cámara turns out vividly flavored Mexican food, often seafood-driven—think halibut ceviche with fennel, daikon radish and jalapeños. And Lauren Feldman’s tight wine list is clearly chosen with Cámara’s food in mind. The ...Read the full review

Xochi
review by Jamal Rayyis

In a luminous space in Houston’s new Marriott Marquis, Xochi is chef Hugo Ortega’s homage to Oaxaca. Ortega, who won the 2017 James Beard Award for Best Southwest Chef, puts the wood-burning horno to good use, turning out succulent roasted meat ...Read the full review

Taco Addiction
review by Julia Weinberg

Napa has no shortage of great taco trucks, but if there’s time for only one stop, make it Taco Addiction. Typically stationed outside the movie theater in South Napa, with guest appearances at hot spots like

Californios
review by Daria Frum

Chef Val Cantu, his wife, Carolyn, and beverage director Charlotte Randolph challenge preconceptions about Mexican cuisine at this 26-seat restaurant, a formal but not fussy space in the Mission. The tasting menu (no à la carte here) starts with a medley of small botanas followed by 12 courses that evoke Mexico, ...Read the full review

Espita Mezcaleria
review by Tony Ware

A window at Espita Mezcaleria is stamped with “Masa. Mole. Mezcal,” a literal and conceptual glimpse into this 88-seat restaurant, on the corner of a mixed use development in the Shaw neighborhood. Here, in a space of rolled steel and reclaimed wood, with dynamic street art–style murals lining ...Read the full review

Cosme
review by Zachary Sussman

The first foray into the New York dining scene for Enrique Olvera, the celebrated chef of Mexico City’s Michelin-starred Pujol, Cosme immediately announces itself as a haven for traditional Mexican flavors. Although the bare concrete floor, sleek lines and soaring ceilings might exude a slightly impersonal air, the ...Read the full review

Padrecito
review by Lou Bustamante

Yes, you can find plenty of Tequila and an array of Margaritas at Padrecito, but bar manager David Ruiz can make even a scotch or gin drink seem appropriately Mexican. The gin-based Pasa Tiempo, for example, balances celery and lime in an elixir capable of extinguishing any chile-sparked fi ...Read the full review

Pulqueria
review by A.T.

It feels a bit strange to go to a Mexican place in the heart of Chinatown. And it doesn’t get any less strange when you push through an unmarked door beneath the yellow neon sign of a non-existent Vietnamese restaurant, head down a long, dingy stairway and ...Read the full review

Empellón Taqueria
review by Tara Q. Thomas

In a dark room on a busy corner of the West Village, Alex Stupak has managed to convince a wide swath of New Yorkers that Mexican food can be elegant and inspired through his unusual dishes. The bar scene, however, makes it clear that people are more stubborn when ...Read the full review

Temazcal
review by Annie B. Copps

Temazcal Tequila Cantina stands out amid the recent influx of Latin restaurants and Seaport-area newbies not just for Chef Todd Hall’s regional Mexican and South American cookery (which includes housemade tortillas, mole poblano and whole suckling pig), but also for his 300-plus Tequila list. This is the ...Read the full review

Esperanza
review by Jenny Cunningham

Esperanza Esperanza offers wine lovers much more than agave for their Latin American get-aways. The 56-room luxury hotel on a pair of private coves in Cabo San Lucas is the latest property from Auberge Resorts, the owner of Napa’s Auberge du Soleil, San Ysidro Ranch in Santa Barbara, ...Read the full review
