Grito is open until 1am most nights, and that’s the main reason why we like this place. You can stop by at 11pm on a Tuesday, grab a table, and eat some perfectly decent Mexican food, like steak tacos or an al pastor burrito. They also make some very strong cocktails here, and we’re fans of the dark, festive space stuffed with liquor bottles and other knick knacks. Stop by with a friend for a quick weeknight dinner, or just sit at the bar, drink a mezcal negroni, and have some nachos by yourself.
