La Mina

La Mina, which means "the mine" in Spanish, is tucked under the new Drey Hotel in The Village and is actually a bit underground. At the helm in the kitchen here is chef Tony Ibarra, whose resume includes Petra and the Beast, FT33, CBD Provisions, Small Brewpub, Proof and Pantry and Nanna. They server appetizers, tacos and regionally inspired large plates. One of those regions also includes Texas, so you’ll find enchiladas de queso y rajas ($16) with Oaxacan cheese, poblano chilies, epazote, salsa ranchera, rice and refried black beans. A carne asada de mole amarillo ($29) is a grilled steak with yellow mole, roasted potatoes, chorizo and carrot-jalapeño escabeche. All the tacos, as well as the big plates, are served with their house-made tortillas using heirloom corn nixtamalized and ground in-house. They serve brunch on Saturday and Sunday. The 24-seat patio is lovely when the weather is nice.
