Poquitos Restaurant Review

: Poquitos can be on the noisy side, but consider the moody lighting and sexy ironwork decorations and there's all the more reason to lean in close. James Weimann and Deming Maclise, masterminds behind the Ballard hot-spot Bastille, opened this spot to dish up authentic Mexican cuisine prepared with local ingredients. From the main dining room, enjoy views of the open kitchen, where tortillas are hand-rolled and pressed from fresh masa. Or take advantage of the year-round patio, always open due to radiant-heated benches and floor. The limited lunch menu features one of the restaurant's best dishes --- a pork carnitas sandwich drowned in a guajillo red sauce. Other favorites include chipotle prawns and the brisket tacos topped with onion, cilantro and salsa roja. The tequila selection is vast but drinks are poured on the weaker side. For dessert, try the refreshing pineapple popsicles.
