Mezcalero, new Mexican spot open at 14th and Spring with 17 tacos, has 50+ mezcals, brunch and more


A while ago I wrote about how our neighborhood is the taco-est in the city, and now it's getting even more: the Washingtonian reports that Mezcalero Cocina Mexicano has just opened at 3714 14th Street NW, near the Red Derby and next to Taqueria Habanero.

The spot was opened by Alfredo Solis, who runs El Sol in Logan Circle, a mostly take-out spot. He is from Mexico City and was also the executive chef at Fuego, according to their article.

The spot will have a lot of Mexican style street good, 17 types of tacos, tortas, enchiladas, fajitas and other traditional Mexican dishes, plus different types of ceviche, oysters, mole, stew and more. They'll have a three course prix-fixe brunch too for $18. The full menu, which is quite large, is here.

There will also be cocktails ranging from $8 to $12 with things like prickly pear and tamarind margaritas, with the drinks from Arturo Zaloga who formerly worked at Marvin.

As for competing with the popular neighboring Taqueria Habanero, Solis tells DCist that he thinks there's enough business for both places. I hope he's right!
