República

$$$$9512068237
Hours:SUN
5PM-11PM

It’s worth heading to the Pearl District to experience Republica’s five-course tasting menu at dinner. Not just for the small bites showcasing Mexican and indigenous ingredients like flying ants, but also for the history lessons that come with each course. For example, you'll see dishes that draw from ancient Mayan times, like ha' sikil p'ak dip (made from water, pepitas, and tomatoes) that's used as a sauce to highlight tender octopus. Come here for a special occasion and add on a wine pairing that features pours exclusively from BIPOC, female, and LGBTQ winemakers, with a focus on Mexican and Mexican-American producers. If you’re looking for a more casual meal or some tacos and quesadillas, they have a great sister restaurant La Fondita right down the street.

Eem is worth the inevitable wait for a menu full of Thai barbecue and cocktails with mini-umbrellas.
