Friday, 5/25/12: Mole Manhattans at La Cuevita
I used to live 4 blocks away from Highland Park’s Little Cave. So when I heard that this beloved Eastside institution would be no more, I was pretty devasted–that is, until I saw it. Debuting on Cinco de Mayo as “La Cuevita,” or Spanish for “the little cave,” the bar has been reborn as “a new, Old-World Mexican grotto.”
With a huge collection of tequilas and concoctions like the “Mole Manhattan,” and the “Mezclada,” La Cuevita is not only a spicy feast for the taste buds, but for all the senses. It’s beautiful.
