Mexican: In March 2014, Machete opened its second restaurant, this one in LoDo situated between Coors Field and Union Station. While the original Cherry Creek eatery has a charming Mexican dive-bar feel, the aesthetic in LoDo is more upscale. Interesting artwork was purchased on the streets of Mexico City, a fitting complement to Chef Jose Avila's menu inspired by dishes typical of Mexico's capital, his hometown. Tacos are front and center but with twists, such as a version featuring grilled halibut marinated in recado rojo, pineapple butter, onion and cilantro and served with a squid-ink tortilla. Not to worry, there are versions with hangar steak, roast pig and lamb shank, too. Mezcals, dozens of tequilas and a fine selection of hand-shaken margaritas--including the fiery Hot Mess made with tequila infused in-house with habanero and Serrano peppers.
Local Expert Christine Loomis Says:
Mexican: "No worries about driving under the influence. Machete has its own party bus that you can reserve to pick you up and/or take your group home if you and your friends have been enjoying such Machete favorites as pineapple-infused tequila shots. Ask management for details."
