Named for the historical hacienda in Mexico once owned by Don Miguel Hidalgo—the father of Mexican independence—and known for its artisanal tequila, Corralejo Mexican Flair proffers south-of-the-border eats and tequila-based libations. Chefs in the kitchens of all three locations whip up traditional dishes, hand-mashing fresh avocados for batches of rich guacamole and flash-frying sun-dried-tomato tortillas to serve as a base for chimichangas. Having perfected the science of mixology during rigorous training sessions, Corralejo’s expert bartenders sling tequila-based beverages down the bar along trajectories they've carefully diagrammed on cocktail napkins.

Mexican-food enthusiasts Ali and Lana found themselves seeking out the spicy cuisine at least three times a week. They were determined to find a place that fulfilled all their needs: good food with vegetarian options, quality margaritas, a patio, and few to no poltergeists. When Across the Street's current space opened up, the two jumped at the chance to create the restaurant they had been searching for. Both previous owners of eateries along with wine shops, coffeehouses, and an antiques business, they seamlessly blended their former experiences in their new location.
Today, Across the Street welcomes fellow food fans with housemade margaritas, a large selection of tequilas, and fresh Mexican entrees. Guests feast on plates ranging from vegetarian chimichangas to shrimp tostadas by the bar or on the bustling outdoor patio, where meals are sometimes scored to live music. After dining, patrons can stop by the adjoining market, which supplies everyday products alongside locally produced breads and pastries.
