Quetzal is another dinner spot that’s basically impossible to book, but they do take some walk-ins, or you can try and snag a last-minute cancellation—the Mexican food here is worth the effort. There’s a 26-foot-long wood-burning grill that they use for many dishes, including an excellent pastor plate with charred pineapple and caramelized onion salsa and Hokkaido scallops with green garlic butter and sea asparagus. If you’re looking for a taco, the blue masa tortillas are handmade with heirloom corn before being packed with flavorful fillings like lamb barbacoa, chorizo, and mushrooms. The narrow space is meant to feel sort of like a market in Oaxaca, with low ceilings and curved white walls, and is usually filled with couples and groups celebrating special occasions.
