Shots at Glory
Tequila and Ceviche Downtown
If on Thursday you answered truthfully about what you were most thankful for—tequila—it may
not have gone over so well.
But that's only because you weren't at Provecho
, the new Mexican restaurant and tequila bar
soft-opening Downtown today.
Once you're ready to join your fellow tequila-lovers in your rightful home, you've got three options upon
entrance. A seat by the bar means you've got the best vantage point of the nearly-100-strong tequila
selection, with a built-in humidor framing it all. (A view is always important at dinner.) Behind that is
the ceviche bar, where you can enjoy your Ahi Tuna with Margarita Gelée
at a counter
separated from the open kitchen only by a wall of water. (You always try to find some crashing waves to go
with your seafood and shots.)
But if you're there for a meeting, or just require more room for your plates of Chorizo-Stuffed
, Coffee Mole-Crusted Foie Gras Parfait
and Oxtail-Stuffed Halibut Cheeks
there's the more formal dining room to get you through the evening.
And since city life requires proper vetting of all neighbors, you'll recall that Remedy
is also now open just around the corner, with the same owners, but a different entrance,
different vibe and different menus.
Because you're pretty thankful for vodka too.
