There are many parts of Mestizo that make a good first impression. There's some interesting art and decor from Mexico, there's the view of the sound, a fireplace, a water feature. And our bartender was an attractive and friendly marine biologist named Gretchen. There are 200 types of tequila to choose from, and a changing menu from across Latin America -- Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Argentina, Colombia and Venezuela.
Neither the food nor the cocktails that we had were particularly outstanding, and it does not yet seem to be attracking a lot of customers. But it's clear the owners have put a lot of thought into it, so you would like to see it succeed.
