Fresh to Columbia Heights just two months ago, Mezcalero Philadelphia brings authentic Mexico City flavors to 11th Street. Craft cocktails, fresh ceviche, and a colorful gathering space make this Mexican eatery one of the most charming on the block, and with extensive tequila and mezcal lists, it’s easy to spend an entire afternoon here.
Traditional Mexican favorites like the mushroom fundido, basket tacos are popular, and each one even uses corn instead of wheat flour for those who are gluten intolerant. Guests love Mezcalero’s street food-inspired menu items, and say flavors are bold, complementary of each other, and fresh, whether you order rice and beans or a more complex dish.
Stop in for Baja California fish tacos, oysters al carbon, or an overnight slow-cooked barbacoa between 11 a.m. and midnight Sunday through Thursday, or 11 a.m. and 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
