Friday, 9pm: You’re in South Beach. There’s a long night ahead of you. Sustenance is crucial. Mexican food is... probably not a wise choice.

Friday, 9:05pm: Mexican food is a wise choice.

Because you’ve stumbled upon Tocaya Organica. It’s a new healthy-leaning Mexican spot on Lincoln Road from Chris Paciello and Mio Danilovic, and it’s now open. Take a look.

Remember 920 Grill? No? Anyway, this is where that was. Smack-dab in the middle of Lincoln Road. But things look considerably different from its Argentine predecessor. A lot of gleaming white subway tile and marble. Chevron wood walls. A bar. The bar part is comforting.

They’ve got all the stuff you’d typically expect from a fine Mexican establishment—tacos, burritos, tamales, guac, (here’s the menu). But as the name implies, they’re putting a healthier spin on things via organic everything, sustainable everything... you get it. Basically, your chicken tinga tacos and carne-asada-stuffed burritos are pre-South-Beach-shenanigans-approved.

Margaritas and micheladas: check. A churro waffle sandwich filled with salted caramel ice cream: of course. They also serve lunch, if you’re into lunch.

What a world.
