Atención: Espita ya no admite reservaciones a través de OpenTable. Las reservaciones se podrán realizar a través de la página web que se muestra más abajo. Espita Mezcaleria es el principal restaurante de cocina mexicana del sur y bar de mezcal de Washington DC. Para garantizar que los comensales disfruten de la mejor cocina mexicana posible, el establecimiento prepara su propia masa a diario. Así, el chef Alexis Samayoa cuenta con una base para elaborar magníficos platillos, como moles, tlayudas, tacos, sopes y fundidos. Los comensales que deseen opciones más ligeras y refrescantes podrán disfrutar del equilibrio perfecto de la selección de ceviches y ensaladas. En el bar, la experiencia comienza al estilo mezcalería, con una amplia selección y rotación de mezcales para degustar con acompañamientos tradicionales. Como los modernos bares de cócteles, el establecimiento se inspira en cócteles clásicos, así como en sus propias creaciones modernas, para elaborar una lista de cócteles con un guiño a la cultura mexicana, pero de diseño totalmente personal.

While the food here is great, I won’t be back because of the service. The first time it happened I thought it was just the waitress, but now that it’s happened several times I will go elsewhere. Our waiter could not be found anywhere, we couldn’t get drink refills, and our dessert took over half an hour. The food might be good but it’s not worth the annoyance.

Had the vegetarian "entre" of cauliflower. It was a joke, $18 for a roasted quarter of cauliflower. Not really a good veggie meal. Drinks are great but food seems to be an afterthought often.

Waitress was attentive and friendly. I really enjoyed my favorite highball and chorizo tacos. It's become one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood.

Espita

Hi Kim, Thank you so much for the compliments! It's an honor to be a favorite of yours (especially considering how great the restaurants in Shaw are). We're working on a new chorizo recipe right now that we're really excited about. Can't want to hear what you think of it! The plan is to roll it out next weekend at brunch. Cheers, Kelly

OpenTable was great. Wife and I tried walking in off the street and the hostess said the wait was 1 hour 20 minutes. I walked outside, pulled up OpenTable, made a reservation for literally 5 minutes later, walked back in, and the hostess was seriously beside herself... Sat us immediately-with some comment about how she was going to tell the owner the app was not syncing correctly. Dinner was actually really good. Thank you OpenTable!!!

Espita
Respondió el 2 de febrero de 2020

Hi Christopher, Apologies for the confusion! Occasionally OpenTable does not accurately represent our available table inventory and it can cause a touch of confusion at the host stand, but we are happy our hosts were able to get you seated promptly! I'll discuss this with the team tomorrow to ensure it doesn't happen again. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and for the compliments about your dinner. Hope to see you again soon! Cheers, Kelly Phillips

The fixed price menu was a fantastic deal! I had the ceviche which was spicy and refreshing, the crispy pork which was succulent, and the pumpkin for dessert which was Devine, all accompanied by a smokey mezcal cocktail. Well worth the price!

The mezcal is on point and so is the food! The space is fine, but the vibe could be improved some - maybe artwork? Staff were kind and knowledgeable about mezcal!

Espita
Respondió el 21 de enero de 2020

Hi there, We're so happy you enjoyed your meal! We absolutely love art at Espita! Unfortunately the only place to hang more artwork would be on top of the murals that cover every inch of wall in our restaurant ("Vida y Muerte" & "Punk Frida" by Oaxacan street artist, Yeska) except the wall holding our liquor shelves. There are also 2 murals in our bathrooms, posters and paintings on the glass of the windows lining our patio. Come back soon to check it all out! Cheers, Kelly

This was a terrible experience. We did bottomless drinks with brunch. The bar was “backed up” and it took 55 minutes to get our first drink. A majority of the table only had 1 drink over the 2 hours that we were there. The restaurant was not very apologetic.

The food was a really good modern version of Mexican cuisine. It’s probably the best Mexican restaurant I’ve visited in DC of the six years I’ve been here. I would definitely visit again.

Out with family for Restaurant week. Vibrant/hip vibe inside. Quite loud. Food was good but not great. Too much repetition between apps & entrees. My entree arrived barely luke warm. Better on the 2nd try. Best part of the meal was the inventive cocktails. Delish.
