Itzcali Tapas & Tequila

Posted on February 15, 2024 by under Food and Drink.    

My friend Chris Townley and I went to check out a new place for lunch a couple of weeks ago. Itzcali is a new Mexican-Italian fusion tapas place that’s actually been open a few months. As with any new restaurant, you never want to go when they first open. You want to give them a bit of time to work out the kinks. Fast forward to the other day when we finally ventured out there for lunch to check things out.

I’ve heard mixed reviews about this place. Either people really love it or absolutely hate it. Part of the problem is the sub-par service but that’s probably when you go at dinner when they are super busy. We went during lunch when it was slow and had decent service. Our server was helpful and friendly.

The interior of the restaurant is nice. There’s plenty of seating. You can sit at a table, booth, or at the bar. The decor is unique and they designed the bar to have ample room for customers who want to sit up there. I also really like the large, custom chandelier, which is a nice interesting touch. When you see it, you know you’re at Itzcali and nowhere else.

The furniture and the art on the walls all tie with the theme.

I’ll have to take Brian there for dinner at some point because the lunch menu is limited. We look at their dinner menu and there are several options that are not available during lunch. Anyway, what is extensive is the tequila menu. They had page and pages of it. No tequila was consumed at lunch. That’s another thing I will have to go back for at some point.

Here are some pictures of our food. It was good but I think expensive for lunch. Although, I think you are paying for the setting as well. This is kind of nice sit-down place as opposed to Chipotle.

I’m making the comparison because I probably could have gotten a similar bowl at Chipotle for half the price. LOL.

I suppose, when you’re eating out, you’re paying for more than just the food. You’re also paying for the experience. And that’s what you’ll have at Itzcali. It’s a pretty good experience as long as you go when they’re note getting slammed. Have you been? What did you think?
