Tequila Museo Mayahuel
This Mexican establishment calls itself a museum—and owner Ernesto 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 the namesake liquors that you can taste in a tequila flight. 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, rich-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.
