The dynamic energy of modern Mexico shines in the edgy décor, boldly indulgent cocktails, and sweeping menus that showcase regional tastes from southern seaports to northern cattle lands. Torre clearly reigns as the party girl of Paxos restaurants. For avid fans, this festive eatery is essentially a lifestyle choice – like an inclusive club – that’s complete with an appealing lineup of merch. One-of-a-kind signature ceramic sugar skulls, hand-painted in Mexico, can add a splash of vibrant color to your home. This iconic motif also brightens T-shirts, growler sleeves, and face masks. Kids can take home their menu with a fun mask on the back.
Guests need never miss out on a favorite dish since both lunch and Sunday brunch features are supplemented by an all-day dinner menu – which is also available for takeout. In-house diners with special dietary need may request a gluten-free or vegetarian menu. An array of scratch-made and robustly flavored traditional fare, from sharable bocaditos (snacks) to land-and-sea entrées, also boasts tasty twists. Made-to-order guacamole comes in four intriguing varieties, and three types of salsa – both served house-made corn chips – supply an appealing launch to a relaxing meal.
An accessible staple of Mexican cuisine, Torre tacos encompass regionally specific and diverse tastes, all presented on a trio of four-inch corn tortillas. The Puebla version delivers full-flavor with a smokiness derived from chicken cooked with chipotles, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and seasonings. Toppings of roasted corn, lettuce, tomato, and queso fresco contribute texture and complexity to the dish. The recommended drink pairing is Dulce y Picante (see recipe on page 88), a spicy-sweet margarita customized with guava purée and smoky flavored mezcal.
A lively mix of margaritas, Mexican mules, and specialty cocktails – plus sangria, wine, and locally crafted Torre House Lager, leaves no thirst unquenched. And the bar’s eponymous 3-story tower displaying 110 types of tequila and mezcal aims to reach an amazing 160 varieties this year.
