El Cortez is a new Mexican concept bar/eatery opening down the way from my house. I got a sneak preview a couple weeks ago and have been gushing since.
It’s nice to see a group of owners show some balls in this city for once and design an establishment with flair and style. Which are in no shortage here.
Designed with a nod to all the good and bad of Modern Mexican culture. They pay homage without appropriating the culture.
I could write for days but I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
Do yourself a favor and try it out, all of it. We need more business owners and Chefs in this city to get a little wild, devoted and most importantly fun, with their projects.
El Cortez is all of that and kudos is too often a term used so I will just say “Thank You”.
