If you think everything in the West Loop is happening on Randolph Street, think again. Take a stroll a block south to Halsted and Washington to find some incredibly authentic Mexican cooking and drinks from former Sabor Saveur chef-owner Yanitzin Sanchez. With beverage director Octavio Ramirez’s assistance, the pair created a sleek, modern atmosphere for experiencing traditional Mexican. Más offers 40 tequilas from 20 different brands and introduces a new tequila each month, featuring it in specialty drinks. There are even taco pairings designed to match the tequilas’ flavor profiles.
THE DRINK TO DRINK:
Anything in-season: For summer, get the Watermelon Margarita with muddled fresh watermelon and sun gold tomatoes, Altos blanco tequila, Aperol, lime juice and agave, with a Hawaiian salt rim.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:
Más prides itself on having fresh, seasonal ingredients in the drinks and food, so even if the website features something that sounds tasty, know it might not be available when you get there.
