From the founders of famed vegan spot Café Gratitude, Gracias Madre creates amazingly delicious Mexican dishes without a shred of meat or cheese. But don’t worry: Even the most dedicated carnivore won’t miss ’em. The cocktails here are as complex and delicious as the food, to boot.
THE DRINK TO DRINK:
Veteran bar director Jason Eisner has assembled a long list of unusual ways to present tequila, including in boozy snowcones, paired with chocolate or in a variety of clever cocktails.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:
The cocktails here are pricey, but if you come during happy hour, you can get a Mezcal Mule or Purista Margarita for five bucks.
