Arguably no other taco joint does more with limited space that this downtown spot. Tucked in a corner of the patio between agave bar Las Perlas and whiskey emporium Seven Grand, Asador specializes in flavors bold enough to punch through the headiness of booze. The smoked brisket is a standout with its mole tamarindo zing. Add a copita of añejo mezcal for a particularly inspired pairing.
