Fashionplate- Sophia Cami at Avenida Cantina

avenida cantinaThis week’s fashionplate features a few of my favorite things- our Sophia eggplants cami, margaritas, and queso.  My dining companion and I were starving after getting my hair did.  I love all things Mexican and tex-mex so I knew we had to hit up Avenida Cantina.  We were promptly seated and I ordered a marg, obvi, and he got a rum punch.  We started with the Big Al’s Special queso which was super yummy with the chorizo in the melty cheese.  The complimentary salsa was also pretty solid.  I went with the frito pie enchiladas with white queso, jalapenos and sour cream on top because you might as well treat yo self.  My dining companion got a steak burrito with queso and sour cream on top.  Needless to say we were both in food coma after our entrees and more drinks.  I loved my Austin-esque enchies and the re-fried beans have more chorizo on them when is amazing.  The crowd is a mix of locals and a few of the new East Village types, you know what I mean.  This is a totally casual and comfy place.

After finishing our fattoush meal, we went downstairs to check out their cocktail spot Mockingbird Bar, where we sampled a few of the cocktails, all of which we liked.  The bartenders were chill and fun.  I definitely will be back.  See how I styled my Sophia cami for this fashionplate below.
