Little Neon Taco is the new fast-casual offshoot of Neon Taco, a dark dive bar on Broadway in Capitol Hill. This spot couldn’t be more different from the original Neon Taco. It’s in the hospital-heavy area of First Hill, it looks like a Los Angeles beachside Airbnb, and they serve agua frescas (which are quite good) and horchata in place of alcohol. The menu’s made up of appetizers like a great guacamole and a not-so-great grainy queso, and then tiny a la carte street tacos on homemade tortillas (which are pretty pricey at $4 each). We like the chicken mole ones in particular, but some tacos here don’t work at all, like the too-salty beef picadillo, and one with soft pork rinds that taste like gelatinous air. We could see Little Neon Taco being a huge hit with people who work nearby at lunchtime, but there are some kinks to work out first.

In addition to having one of our favorite patios in town, Agua Verde in the University District has excellent frozen margaritas and fish tacos.
Hotel Albatross in Ballard is the ultimate birthday spot - the kind of place that serves drinks out of fruit. The Mexican-Asian fusion is good too.
