What We Love With a self-proclaimed “ode to agave,” this mezcal bar and restaurant is rooted in Mexico’s rich culture and the artisans behind it. With a focus on mezcal, cocktails here blend the smoky liquor with things like cherry-almond cordial, hibiscus, violet root bitters and pink peppercorn. Tacos are loaded with ingredients like confit brisket and adobo roasted pork, while guajillo salsa, pineapple chunks and crema cool off spicy bites. You’ll also split a traditional Mexican torta sandwich, like the chicken Chihuahua cheese, or steak with banana peppers. Quiote has caught the attention of Zagat, Bon Appétit, Chicago Tribune and plenty more for its inventive twists and underground bar illuminated by glowing green lights.
