Curra’s biggest claim to fame is their invention of the avocado margarita—a cocktail that somehow makes us feel like what we’re drinking is at least a little bit healthy—but there’s also a pretty large menu of more classic drinks that contain surprisingly few avocados. You’ll find a few Tex-Mex leaning dishes on the menu here, but it’s the more classic Mexican flavors we’re coming back for, including trompo-cooked al pastor enchiladas, cochinita pibil, or steak tacos dusted in Oaxacan coffee grounds.
