Last night my gal pals and I headed downtown for a much needed GNO to El Barrio on 2nd Avenue North. Inside this relatively new, upscale Mexican restaurant we found a lively bar and an hour long wait for a table. No problemo. It’s a rare occasion when we can all get together on the same night (between the five of us, we have 18 children!), and we planned to savor every minute of our night on the town. We headed to the bar and were greeted straight away with friendly and fast service.
For you carnivores, there are plenty of hearty dishes on the menu, such as grilled pork steaks and chorizo meatloaf. What’s more, El Barrio promises all-natural, humanely-raised beef, pork, poultry and seafood and is committed to using locally-sourced ingredients. Now that’s my kind of neighborhood place.
All in all, I’d say this is a must-go place to meet up with friends or for date night with your hubby.
I’ll definitely be back soon for the great ambiance, cocktails, food and service. Muchos gracias, El Barrio, and welcome to the neighborhood!
