Yesterday marked the opening night of La Casa de tu Madre, Bella Vista's newest Mexican restaurant and bar. A few weeks ago, Jason Evenchik (Heritage, Time, Garage, Vintage) closed his Bella Vista gastropub, Growlers, for a complete overhaul.
La Casa de tu Madre's (translated to "your mother's house") chef, Michael Thomas, devised a menu of every neighborhood Mexican restaurant hits: nachos, tacos, enchiladas, and the like. As for drinks, think of the usuals: various margaritas, palomas, tap sangrias etc., as well as some re-imaginings: Roberto Royo, a mezcal take on the grandmother beloved Rob Roy, and the scarcely found Tequila Sunrise — straight out of the playbook.
