In a stylish cantina marked by polished concrete floors and colorful murals, Espita Mezcaleria offers Southern Mexican fare and drinks in the Shaw neighborhood. With an emphasis on Oaxacan mole, diners feast on mole negro with lamb neck, roasted piloncillo and heirloom corn tortillas, grilled tilapia tacos or short rib sopes in salsa rojo. Drink offerings include mezcal flights and Mexican-inspired cocktails like the Por La Sangre (Manzanilla sherry, sweet vermouth, reposado tequila, orange bitters).
