Dining Guide

Lo Salvaje

In the world of celebrated chefs and well-executed food trucks, the latest collaboration between Jesse Griffiths (from Austin’s Dai Due) and Driftwood’s Desert Door sotol distillery is a match made in heaven. Though the menu is limited in size, it more than delivers on flavor. Warm beets in a light, crispy coating are served with a simple squeeze of lime, crumbles of cotija, and smoky morita chile mayonnaise. A wild-boar-chile Frito pie with tangy pickled onions is a tasty option, but we loved every morsel of the double smash burger, the meat a combination of bacon and ground nilgai with American cheese and escabeche relish. And the peppery fried quail sandwich with crispy cabbage on a soft potato bun was also a highlight. For dessert, don’t miss the cinnamon-sugar Cronut drizzled with sotol-infused honey. Ordering is simple: use the QR code available at each table, place your order, and sip a tasty cocktail from the distillery while you wait.
