It Takes Dos
Inside Nopalito’s New Inner Sunset Spot

In the beginning, there was Nopa. And it was good. Especially the pork chops.

And then came Nopalito. And it was also good. Especially the mole.

And now, after much anticipation, comes something completely unexpected, totally radical and altogether unlike anything that’s ever been done before in the field of culinary science.

Okay, so it’s another Nopalito. But this one’s in the Sunset...

Meet the 9th Avenue installment of Nopalito, the semilegendary den of Mexican deliciousness, opening Monday.

So. You probably think you know what you’re getting here: big open windows, cactus-green walls, ridiculously tasty ceviche. And for the most part, you’re exactly right.

But you’re also getting something bigger. Roomier. A place with nearly double the space—meaning a little less time waiting for those no-reservations tables.

For now, you’ll come here for some nosh after lovingly staging a scene-for-scene recreation of Road House in Golden Gate Park. (Or, you know, throwing a frisbee around with friends.) Belly up to the counter overlooking the kitchen for a michelada and some braised pork.

Then, at some point (perhaps up to a year from now), you’ll come back and find glorious mezcals, tequilas and other delights that come with a full liquor license. In the shorter term, expect a new patio, where you can order up standbys old (carnitas, mole) and new—like some Mexican hot chocolate.

It’s infinitely better than Canadian hot chocolate.
