The salsas, shared plates (like a positively delightful salad of hearts of palm, pickled jicama and crunchy sunflower seeds) and sides show this contemporary taqueria to be much more of a bonafide restaurant than bar, a characteristic cemented by the earnest service. And yet, you'd be silly to come here and skip the cocktails, which are the work of Adam Weber (formerly of Trenchermen) and are every bit as refined and nuanced as David Dworshak's food. Attention to seasonality marks the drinks as it does the the food menu, which is the perfect excuse to come back to Takito often.
