Ditroit review image

You won’t casually stumble upon Ditroit. The Arts District taco window is at the end of a walkway, concealed by a parking lot behind foreboding gates surrounded by bunch of dusty industrial lots. But if you’re in the area and looking for a quick, standout lunch, head this way. Ditroit is the breezy daytime operation behind Damian (from the chef of Pujol in Mexico City and Cosme and Atla in NYC), which means the causal food here is super elevated and leans pricey: a “daily catch” fish flauta, cochinita pibil taco, and a palo santo-cucumber-yuzu agua fresca will run you almost $30. But oof, it’s good. They nixtamalize their masa in-house, that cochinita pibil oozes with salacious, citrusy juices, and the suadero taco—with crispy-but-still juicy cubes of brisket and top round beef—is always on our minds.
