Bold Drinks Coming to Ballston
A true cantina calls for killer cocktails, and that’s exactly what Ballston can expect when Chef Mike Isabella opens Pepita in early 2015. Previews of both food and drink in the form of a pop-up have been available this month at G by Mike Isabella. That’s where we snapped Beverage Director Taha Ismail in between mixing Mezcal and tequila with ingredients like tangerine lace, avocado shrub and tamarind-infused Falernum. His drinks complement a series of tacos, ceviches and salads. Nov. 7 and 8 are the last dates to try the $40, four-course Pepita menu at G. Call for reservations.
