Maz MezcalAnother thing we thought we’d never see: expensive Mexican food. Usually, in order to justify higher prices for what used to be cheap grub, restaurateurs would give a fancy name to the same old fare (i.e.: Mexican becomes Southwestern). There is no fooling anyone, this is straight-up Mexican food — and it’s good. The dark restaurant and great frozen margaritas make for a good early Friday night out with a couple friends. [MF]
