Michelle Lee’s summary:
Arriba! Arriba! You need to get to El Poquito! This is such a fun spot to have your wedding shower, bachelor/bachelorette party, engagement party, rehearsal dinner, or intimate wedding reception. You won’t know what you love more – the food, or the margaritas! Both El Poquito’s cuisine and cocktails are absolutely delicious. This is definitely not your run of the mill Mexican restaurant.
For example, one of their recent facebook posts told fans, “Tonight’s Menu Addition: Ancho chile glazed octopus tostada, refried beans, queso fresco, avocado and radish.” (This is the featured picture to the left) How do they make octopus look so good??!! I’ve never ate Octopus before, yet El Poquito’s executive chef, Andrew Sabin, certainly makes me want to try it! This is just one example of how you’ll always have a unique experience at this Mexican Cantina. Not to mention, their outside patio space is the Perfecto place for your Fiesta!
