  • Azul 17 Mexican Cuisine & Tequila Lounge

    "Azul 17 Mexican Cuisine & Tequila Lounge brilliantly personifies the restaurant-lounge concept with its sophisticated offering & modern design. The contemporary décor is complete with iridescent ocean blue tiles adorning the walls & sleek white leather lounge seating areas which create a cool and inviting atmosphere, reminiscent of hot spots found in South Beach. We are very excited about bringing a refreshing vibe and dining experience to the area which we feel will allow our clients to relax, enjoy themselves and just escape for awhile without the need to catch a flight or travel into the city. Of course, this cosmopolitan lounge would not be complete without the sensual sounds of downtempo-midtempo grooves to set the mood. Bring an open mind as our resident & guest DJ’s provide an eclectic mix of musical flavors that will move your mind, body & soul. Azul 17 specializes in contemporary authentic Mexican cuisine which essentially means that our recipes are made from scratch staying true to the authentic flavors of Mexico and our Executive Chef, Damian Portuguez, prepares dishes using the latest culinary techniques. We are proud of our vibrant menu and guarantee that you will find many unique Mexican dishes at Azul 17 that you will not find at your garden variety tex-mex restaurant. Some of the contemporary cuisine you will find on the menu include a variety of tableside prepared guacamoles, sushi grade ceviches (citrus marinated seafood cocktails) and delectable small plates served family style. They are complimented by the authentic flavors and original recipes that Chef Damian learned from his grandmother in Mexico. Just like you would find in his grandmothers kitchen our empanadas, tamales, hand-pressed mini tortillas and desserts are made fresh daily in house. Why Azul 17? “Azul” in English means “blue” which is the color of the Agave plant, the main source of Tequila and “17” is the owner’s life-long lucky number. Azul 17 is the vision of Owner, Julio Soto, a Cuban American and his wife, Lily Soto, who is from the tequila region of Jalisco, Mexico. Their vision has come to life as they incorporate their appreciation for culture and exceptional tastes in food, tequila, fine wines, design and music to create the ultimate dining destination. As true entrepreneurs this is not their first business venture however it is their first personally owned restaurant. For the past 10 years Julio & Lily have worked with other Mexican restaurants to gain experience and prepare for the opening of their own restaurant. They have owned a country western apparel store and still operate Lily's Latin Market on Dobbin Road in Columbia. They have always prided themselves in only using the freshest ingredients and quality products. The Soto's look forward to exposing and educating their guests about the cultivating and distilling of their collection of over 100 premium tequilas. You will find the number "17" throughout our offering, starting with our 17 fresh hand squeezed margaritas & international cocktails. Julio & Lily understand the importance of quality and that is why the Azul 17 Traditional Margarita is guaranteed to be the best in town because we use premium silver tequila, fresh hand squeezed lime juice and organic agave nectar! We also feature an eclectic wine list that has been hand selected by Owner, Julio, to pair beautifully with our cuisine. As small business owners they are excited to finally provide a new hot spot in their community for dining, dancing, nightlife and a great ambiance for families & business professionals alike. The Azul 17 team of passionate professionals is dedicated to consistently providing our guests with superior service and a memorable experience that will only leave you yearning for more! Mexican Cuisine our specialty, Tequila Lounge our distinction. Salud!"

  • Blue Agave Restaurante and Tequileria

    When a restaurant offers more than 100 kinds of tequila, its menu can be somewhat beside the point. Like, really, who cares? Blue Agave, however, tries hard to serve highly authentic Mexican food and generally succeeds. Simpler dishes like burritos de carne asada, pork carnitas, and quesadillas are what the kitchen does best; sometimes the more exotic dishes get a little muddled, like maybe the cooks have unfettered access to the tequila. Surprisingly, desserts are terrific. Mexican cuisine isn't renowned for its sweet endings, but Blue Agave's house-made tres leches cake and flan of the day are outstanding.

  • Carolina's Tex Mex
  • Centro Tapas Bar

    Centro offers a variety of Spanish and South American tapas dishes. Extensive list of wine, sherry and port from Spain and South America.

  • Chicken Rico

    "Excellent Peruvian charboiled chicken and other Peruvian dishes."

  • Diablita
  • Dominicano Internacional Restaurant
  • El Rinconcito Peruano
  • El Salto

    Ah, El Salto, from tapas and chile rellenos to enchiladas and tacos, you can rarely go wrong at this yummy, cheap Mexican restaurant. With locations in Parkville and Brooklyn Park, El Salto is often overlooked, but never by those who eat there. Comfortable atmosphere, and terrific flan--either one is worth a visit or two.

  • El Salto II

    Ah, El Salto, from tapas and chile rellenos to enchiladas and tacos, you can rarely go wrong at this yummy, cheap Mexican restaurant. With locations in Parkville and Brooklyn Park, El Salto is often overlooked, but never by those who eat there. Comfortable atmosphere, and terrific flan--either one is worth a visit or two.

  • El Taquito Mexicano

    In the mood for authentic Mexican cuisine for only a few tamales? Stop by El Taquito, a quaint Fells Point restaurant where Mexico's colors fly proudly. Start the night off right with the chips with salsa and guacamole, followed by a choice of traditional burritos, fajitas, tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, or a variety of specials that are served with rice, beans, and tortillas. Most entrées are your choice of beef, chicken, pork, or beans and cheese. For you (very) brave souls, they offer lamb, beef tongue, and rabbit to fill your tortillas. You won't need many greenbacks, but they don't take the plastic.

  • El Trovador

    The first Salvadoran restaurant along the Broadway strip to openly court a gringo clientele, this white-tablecloth spot is more inviting and finished looking than its ramshackle Spanish Town precursors. The food served is very similar, though--groaning servings of plain, simple, modestly spiced food. The value-priced combination platters are artless concoctions of dense papusas, endless refried beans, yummy tamales, fried plantains, and marinated beef. Seafood selections from the mesquite grill help to raise up the fare. Restaurante El Trovador is the place to take newcomers to try this starchy, satisfying cuisine.

  • Fiesta Mexicana Highlandtown
  • Holy Frijoles!

    Holy Frijoles' simple but substantial Mexican fare is addictive. We don't know what it does to those refried beans, but if we don't have them on a regular basis we get the shakes. Grab one of its huge burritos or chimichangas, offered with a variety of meat and veggie fillings, and you'll see what we mean--once you've gotten over that so-full-you-can-barely-breathe feeling. Frijoles is also known for its inventive alcoholic beverages. Try the Cucumber Margarita, the Tilted Windmill, or the Frijolejito. You won't be sorry.

  • Island II Bar and Grill
  • La Cazuela

    This sunny, family-run storefront Ecuadoran restaurant serves up hilariously mammoth portions of authentic cuisine. Brace yourself for the churrasco, long, flat cuts of marinated skirt steak, served with avocado, white rice, two fried eggs, chopped tomatoes, and steak-cut french fries; or the fritada, tender-roasted pork served with plantains and hominy. Order anything with La Cazuela's righteous chimichurri sauce; consider the cheese-stuffed plantain appetizer; or, for something really different, the dark, briny, souplike ceviche. BYOB.

  • La Guadalupana Tienda and Restaurante
  • La Promesa Taco Shop
  • La Sirenita Restaurante II

    La Sirenita offers traditional Mexican on the cheap with no thrills. The dining area is tight alongside a busy, open kitchen and a soda case with plenty of authentic flavors in glass bottles, including Sangría without the alcohol. Huge bowls of soup (shrimp or beef tripe or hominy with pork or fish) come with a platter of hard corn tortillas and veggie garnishes, and at just around a ten-spot, they make for a hearty meal. A list of beef and chicken specials includes fried quail; all specials are served with yummy refried pintos and corny yellow rice, as are the spicy enchiladas with red or green sauce, chile rellenos, and chilaquiles. Seafood also plays a role on the menu--La Sirenita means mermaid--with ceviche, oysters, grilled shrimp, and fried fish. The à la carte burritos and simple tacos with fresh parsley, chopped white onion, and flavorful meats make for a nice lunch, as do the large meat-filled sandwiches. They promise a BYOB license soon, so until then, save the Coronas with lime for before and after.
