New York City: Mayahuel

Mayahuel—named for the goddess of agave, the source of both mezcal and tequila—focuses on both spirits. Owner Phil Ward mixes exquisite drinks like the Slight Detour, combining jalapeño-infused tequila, reposado (aged) tequila, mezcal and agave nectar. The food is Mexican as well, like cochinita, braised pork belly with papaya-mango mustard.
