Xochitl

Media Title

Xochitl--the authentic upscale Aztec bar/lounge/restaurant in Headhouse Square--serves the freshest, tastiest margaritas in Philly. Choose your tequila (Herradura, El Tesoro, Siembra Azul ... the list goes on) mixed with freshly squeezed lime juice, or try a fresh and fancy Mexican cocktail with the likes of chile-infused tequila, muddled blood orange and cranberries, fresh agua de Jamaica or prickly pear juice, and garnishes like a spicy pomegranate rim. Agave purists, meanwhile, can sip and savor the premium tequila flights arranged by maker (Sauza Tres Generaciones, Don Julio or Patron) or style (blanco, reposado or aoejo), while munching on earthy, belly-filling huitlacoche gorditas. Good tequila will cost you, so don't miss Xochitl's half-price-margaritas happy hours.

You won't find the familiar Spanish influences that dominate many Mexican restaurants here, but you will find hearty braised meats, crisp seafood cocktails and some familiar appetizers like sopes, queso fundido and guacamole--all dressed in their Sunday best. Chef Dionicio Jimenez, a Puebla native, put in eight years at Vetri, and his experience there has put a high-end shine on his interpretation of Mexican cuisine. An impressive assortment of cocktails makes sitting and dining at the Talavera-tiled bar an even more appealing prospect.
