Try the Paloma Fresca at BartacoMay 31, 2018
The Paloma Fresca at Bartaco departs a bit from your typical margarita. It’s a refreshing mix of top-shelf tequila, grapefruit and lime juice, Peychaud’s and grapefruit bitters, and a dash of sparkling water. The tart-sweet libation is just one of the specialty cocktails on the menu at Bartaco, all designed to complement the contemporary Mexican grub.
Unsurprisingly, the tacos are the main event. Order your tacos tucked inside of a classic tortilla or with a lighter bibb lettuce wrap instead. Taco varieties range from classics like Baja fish, spicy chorizo, and pork carnitas to gourmet options such as glazed pork belly, sesame ribeye, and falafel. The chef also transforms tacos into rice bowls, skipping the tortilla in favor of a bed of rice loaded with everything from roasted duck to ahi tuna. Wash down your dish with a cocktail or a house-made soda like the ginger-grapefruit.
