Omnivore - Mezcalito’s: a third Mex-style restaurant opens in Grant Park

Hot decor and mild cuisine at Mezcalito’s


Olé, everybody. Mezcalito’s Cocina and Tequila Bar has opened in Grant Park. Sister to the popular restaurant in Oakhurst, Mezcalito’s Cantina, it’s been open about three weeks. It joins Mi Barrio and Agave in providing the neighborhood with Mexican-Southwestern fare.

The place is a looker. It’s another converted storage place, but the metal exterior is hangar-like. The designers have taken that curvy shape inside to portions of the walls and the bar area. Day of the Dead allusions show up here and there. It’s a bit kitschy and lots of fun.
