Named for the goddess of the agave plant, Mayahuel in the East Village offers a mix of traditional and modern Mexican cuisine and fine mescals and tequilas from Mexico as well as cocktails. Behind the tiled bar are dark shelves holding row upon row of bottles, and overhead are rustic wooden beams. Among the dark colors of the restaurant are patterned Mexican tiles, lending pockets of brightness. As to the fare, executive chef Luis Gonzales and his team produce aesthetically arranged dishes like paella del mar and cochinita (braised pork belly with papaya mango mustard).
Forget the shot glass, lime, and salt. At Mayahuel tequila is for sipping only.
