Perhaps the city’s first restaurant to really master the food-to-go transition—without sacrificing singular takes on its cheeky dinner-only cuisine. Order this to go: no-fault, made-for-takeaway Taquitos Mar de Cortez: panko-coated and fried cod dressed with chipotle cream, radishes, and cabbage, all embraced by a satisfyingly thick corn tortilla that goes the distance (home). Troubled times clearly call for Fideos de la Abuela, a spot-on version of border comfort food (no, your freshman year instant ramen never counted). It comes dotted with avocado, queso fresco, lime, and the house-made crema. Pro tip: New ales are tapped daily, and savvy servers will recommend an ideal pairing. We believe everything goes with the tequila-infused queso borracho or whole roasted corn dressed with cotija cheese, chicharrón, and a surprise zip of harissa.
