My to do list is very long. Fish, Fond, Zama- Zavino. I have been to Xochitl a few times before but it’s been too long. And I wanted to check out the new “El Sabor” menu. 3 courses for $23. Que una ganga. That fits my budget.
Four of us went-which was perfect. We all picked different options so we could exchange nibs and really have a tasting table.
Then you pick one first course, and one taco.
You get three tacos with each serving. I went for a chanterelle mushroom and corn empanadas for the first course. Tacos- I went pork cheek.
We also ordered a couple ceviches, and pork rinds showed up courtesy of the kitchen.
The food was excellent.
Thursdays- the whole menu is 50% off after 10.
Beer wise-= you’re looking at mostly Mexican lagers.
I had a Negra Modelo which I thought was the best pairing for what I ordered. Draft is limited to
While I’m writing about amazing values- I’ll make mention of 13th St’s Sampan, Michael Schulson's Japanse spot in Midtown Village.
I'm not sure if TIME still has there Tom Waits cover band on Wednesday nights- but how perfect would that be to start at Sampan then walk 40 feet to TIME....
