WHY HERE: The focus at this branch of the Teote minichain is of course on agave. A wide range of tequilas and mezcals (including pechugas and infusions) dominate the drinks menu. It’s a dark yet festive spot with wildly decorated walls and ceilings and additional outside seating. Arepas and Latin American–inspired bowls soak up the booze.
WHY NOW: The Teote brand continues to expand. A new Pine Street venue, Teote Outpost, is scheduled to open soon with plenty more great food and drink.
