A new restaurant is opening in Queen Anne, Mezcaleria Oaxaca, by owners of the Ballard eatery, La Carta De Oaxaca. The space was once occupied by Flame, a burger joint and is apparently undergoing interior improvements before it opens. I’ve eaten at La Carta De Oaxaca, and if the new restaurant is anything like the Ballard favorite, I’ll be sure to stop by. The name, Mezcaleria Oaxaca, comes from the word “Mezcal”, the general term for agave-based liquors or “tequilas”. Tequilas produced out of around the city of Oaxaca are the only liquors that can be labeled and sold as Mezcal. At any rate, I can’t wait for the place to open because nothing is better than some tequila and spicy salsas. Keep an eye on the website for more information and for an opening date. See you there!
