This 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.
