Swill, a spot for "sips, snacks, sandwiches and sweets" is making a quiet debut. This subtle wine bar decorated with chalkboards full of featured "swill" and a wine glass chandelier will be the perfect spot to unwind and dine.
Just a wall away and connected via hallway, Tacuba was slammed with patrons on its second dinner service ever, last night.
Arturo or "Chef," was behind the open-line kitchen preparing ceviche, tacos and specialty guacamole. Corn on the cob roasted on the grill as tortillas were heated, filled and served.
Families enjoyed sharing plates while couples cozyed up for an intimate meal among the Mexican-inspired decor of religious crosses and tall patron saint votive candles.
Green plants hanging from the walls in "woolly pockets" and a tableside iPad payment service made Tacuba not just a new restaurant but also the "it" restaurant.
