Because nothing says ‘I love you’ like margs & queso, right?
This week I had the pleasure of previewing Tacos & Tequilas‘ $45 prix-fixe Valentine’s Day menu and let me tell you, my expectations were totally surpassed. From the organic margaritas to the delicately designed seafood tostadas to the Skirt Steak, grilled to perfection, I was blown away. As a first timer at this hidden gem of a Mexican restaurant, I have definitely become a loyal fan and plan to share this place with all of my Galentines & #bae, of course.
So let’s get into it. We were serenaded with live, Latin music in the background on the heated patio with candles lit and the aroma of fresh tortilla chips filling our noses. Romantic, I know. Let’s chat about the food.
First course – organic margs + apps galore. The friendly, upbeat staff at T&T set up an amazing spread of fried calamari, brisket empanadas (OMG), seafood tostadas and fried mushrooms with accompanying sauces including my favorite, a creamy cilantro blend – literally to DIE for. Oh, and you can’t forget the chips, salsa and QUESO.
Next was a sampling of some of the main courses they’re offering on their Valentine’s menu: A succulent salmon filet with house-made tequila sauce, grilled asparagus, chopped mango relish and chipotle mashed potatoes; Chicken Agave, a lean chicken breast with tangy orange sauce over sautéed spinach and grilled asparagus; and the grilled skirt steak with roasted corn and chipotle mashed potatoes. DONE. So, so good and not what you’d anticipate from a typical Mexican place!
After dinner, we got *wild* with a little tequila tasting – white chocolate and almond-infused tequila, garnished with pineapple, to be exact. While I’m more of a vodka girl, it had great flavor – A bit sweet with that tequila burn we all know and love. ;)
Already stuffed, we still managed to make room for dessert because, well…
Our spread included flan, churros, brownies and crepes – all delectable and the perfect way to top off an already amazing meal.
So whether you’re planning a Galentines celebration or need a fun place to spend VDay with your boo that won’t break the bank, here’s all the deets you need to know: The $45 prix-fixe menu, offered at all three locations, includes one appetizer, two entrees (like their famous Chicken Agave or Flame Fajitas) and one dessert PLUS your choice of a bottle of wine or two house margaritas – all for $45. Because, really, who has a fortune to spend on VDay, anyways? Take that, fancy steak dinner!
Thanks to the wonderful staff at Tacos & Tequilas for treating us like VIPs and to Liz Lapidus PR for coordinating a great event! While this meal was comped, all opinions are my own.
