From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Adding Mexican spice to Downtown's hefty portfolio of cocktail dens, Mayahuel is a two-level lounge behind an unmarked door in the East Village that proves tequila is not best enjoyed with a slice of lemon and a lick of salt. Mixologist Phil Ward, of nearby Death & Co., muddles sophisticated libations from tequila and its punchy cousin mescal. The Smoked Palomino, an intense concoction of Amontillado sherry, crema de Mezcal, grapefruit, and lime is a must-order (hold the ice), while the food menu offers welcome stomach liners like tamales and cochinita. The booth dwellers aren't your average cocktail snobs but an unpretentious crowd of after-workers, daters, and locals. Still, the door policy can be obnoxious: Expect to be shooed away on weekend nights, and be prepared to wait at the bar until the rest of your party arrives even if there's room upstairs.—2010 Hot List
