With El Xolo taking over the taco counter inside Nacho Borracho, Capitol Hill has been able to keep its Mexican food and drink game strong in 2019. With the veritable margarita olympics that is Cinco de Mayo in Pike/Pine coming this weekend, one E Pine Mexican joint is making plans for a cool expansion.
Plans for a new Mezcaleria Streateria will go beyond the city’s sidewalk cafes and streateries with a new takeout kitchen on the Summit Ave side of Mezcaleria Oaxaca.
The new lighter, faster addition to the Oaxacan favorite will add to its connection to the E Pine street scene. You know the place also has a taco truck parked on its rooftop deck, right? Expect the new Streateria to take those street tacos one step further.
A cousin to Ballard’s La Carta de Oaxaca, Mezcaleria Oaxaca Capitol Hill debuted in 2014 in a restaurant carved out of a former auto garage building by the architects at Graham Baba. The same Capitol Hill firm will also be designing the new Streateria around the corner on Summit.
Mezcaleria Oaxaca, meanwhile, has already started Cinco de Mayo without you. Its Cinco Days of Cinco includes a week of drink specials including cocktails, slushies, tequila, and “all the tacos” through Sunday.
