The fine collection of agave spirits—boutique tequilas, rare sotols from Chihuahua, and a peerless selection of artisanal mezcals—at Riccardo Ullio’s newest Midtown venture is an education and delight; sip them neat one at a time or in flights of three. On a summer evening, snag a sidewalk table and enjoy the chips and salsa, tongue tacos, and refreshing tuna ceviche.

Drink This: Smooth and not overpoweringly smoky Fidencio Clásico mezcal. For a cocktail, try El Matador, a complex concoction that includes reposado tequila, mezcal, sherry, raspberry iced tea, and tamarind.
