Amid all the hoopla about margaritas (see Bites posting below), El Tejado comes on the scene with a new liquor license and the promise of margaritas on the menu starting Monday. Owner Ivette Ramos doesn't know what the recipe will entail when the bartenders get busy, but if El Tejado's mole and tamales are any indication, we expect great things. (El Tejado serves water with a wedge of lime balanced on the rim of the glass. Let's hope they treat the tequila with equally fresh-squeezed respect and flair.)
Ramos will also tweak the menu starting next week. She plans to keep the best of the Oaxacan specialties and add a broader Tex-Mex component for "the Anglos," she says.
El Tejado is located at 6317 Charlotte Pike, across from the Sonic.
