Padrecito has some of the best salsas in town. Tonight for dinner I shared a bowl of tomato soup that was smooth and spicy, yet still retained the goodness of summer tomatoes that comes across in a more textured soup. The arctic char tacos are reliably delicious here, and the crispy chicken tacos are tasty bites of summertime, a California-ized version of the taco salad of yesteryear.
Padrecito has an extensive tequila and mescal menu and makes some really good cocktails. La Copa Verde, which is #9 on 7x7 magazine's The Big Drink 2014, is a bright green, spicy, smoky concoction made with mezcal, cilantro, chipotle powder and lime. Delicious!
