Dining Guide

Salomé on Main

Jessica and Larry Delgado have been making lemonade out of lemons during these strange new times, and their latest twist is a weekly curbside setup they call “Thicc Thaco Thursdays.” Order this to go: One of their family meals (cochinita pibil, beef short ribs) or the aforementioned Thursday special. Ours was about a pound of trimmed and sliced 2F Akaushi brisket with a salty crust and bright red smoke ring, along with freshly made flour tortillas and chef-perfect sides. We can’t forget the tangy citrus-and-cucumber slaw and the terrific árbol chile salsa with roasted tomatillo and tomato that gave the tacos just enough zing. Pro tip: Order at least a day ahead, and be sure to add one of their paloma or margarita cocktail kits!
