Sister Mexican restaurant to Añejo, Blanco Cantina exudes Mexican rec-room chic with a garage door wall that opens to the sun in summer, turning the whole place into an indoor patio. For snacking or starters, begin with spicy wings, house-made guacamole and quesadillas. The tacos are tops, but the burritos are big: the beef brisket-filled El Demonio weighs a pound. Pair with any of 50 tequilas, Latin cocktails and beach-party-apropos beer cocktails.
A casual fine-dining spot, long a fixture on 17th Avenue Southwest, Brava Bistro knows how to super-charge comfort foods (ask about the lobster poutine). Its festival burger features an Angus beef patty with duck confit and crispy duck skin on a brioche bun. Cherry mustard, provolone, white cheddar and lettuce accompany.
Another sophisticated take on the dish, Brava Bistro’s lobster poutine is as rich and tasty as its name suggests. Befitting its casual-upscale setting, the bistro serves pomme frites smothered in silky smooth butter sauce and tops the dish with lobster, mascarpone cheese and herbs. This may be the city’s most Champagne-compatible poutine.
