Restaurateur Ernesto Delgado’s K Street Mexican place calls itself a museum—and Delgado considers the food and drinks the “exhibits” every bit as much as the artwork. All showcase the culture of Mexico, from its wealth of distinctive regional cuisines to its nuanced tequilas that you’ll sip from champagne flutes. Delgado is a native of Michoacán, and the food in part memorializes his mother’s cooking, like the carne de puerco en salsa verde (a pork dish); other items, like the mole poblano or the smooth, forest-green cream of poblano chile soup, spotlight traditional Mexican techniques and ingredients. At lunch, drop by the walk-up counter of Maya’s Kitchen, where the restaurant serves fast, well-priced street food such as burritos and tortas.
