With a 7-foot tall pink neon monkey clinging to the rooftop signaling the entrance down the back alley, La Comida is both edgy and enticing. The space encompasses 3000 feet of indoor space with an additional 500 feet of patio seating on Sixth Street. The décor is rustic Mexican chic imbuing comfort, camaraderie and rocking energy. Traditional Mexican materials and motifs combine with contemporary design elements to create an innocent anti-establishment feel with a nod to the 20th Century Mexican intellectual movement. A similar energy carries through to the food. La Comida serves a chef-driven menu with traditional favorites like Mexican street corn and tortilla soup and elevates them with choices like Puerco Ahumado and Pollo al Horno baked in a parchment bag, opened tableside. Combining the flavors and aromas of ancho chiles, tomatillo, roasted garlic, cilantro, charred onions, queso, jalepeno and lime gives a rich and wild image of the restaurant as a whole. With over 100 tequilas on our list, there is a toast to match every flavor, as well for a stand-alone celebration, not that tequila ever stands alone. Add a horde of comarades and a riff of American rock and the experience is complete—both intensely vigorous and purely comfortable.
