Clavel; take two…


This post is a long over due companion post.  I love this place.  I am lucky; it is close to home.  Lane Harlan is opening my eyes to all the Mezcals.  In fact, there is usually a new on (or 5) on the shelf each time I go.  Adam and Dre are my favorites, although most of the bartenders are knowledgeable about the Mezcal and it’s culture.  If you haven’t been – get here and go during happy hour.  $6 Mezcalitas and $6 queso fundido – melty melty cheese with chorizo (or not, if you prefer) and a side of guac and refried beans.  Plus, tons of house made chips.


They also make a great ceviche, one with Mahi and two with shrimp.   I don’t love shrimp, so I tend to lean towards the tacos.   The tacos are good – try all the fillings.  And all the dipping sauces, for that matter.  The tacos always disappear before I can take the picture.  The food is truly authentic Mexican – simple, quality ingredients and flavors.
