A Mexican restaurant in your neighborhood is a way of knowing you’ve arrived. An attractive BYOB serving breakfast nachos and carne asada salads and offering dinner specials like poached tilapia is a subtle clue that house prices are rocketing skyward and you’re happy you bought when you did. That’s what Cafe Ynez does for both the Grad Hospital and Point Breeze neighborhoods. The husband-and-wife team of Evan Malone and Jill Weber (Jet Wine Bar and Rex 1516) have created this third restaurant as a companion to Malone’s NextFab Studio. But it’s the neighbors who make out best in the deal. Whether it’s the huevos rancheros that don’t need to take a backseat to any in the city, or the rotisserie chicken that can anchor a dinner platter or be a key ingredient in the Tinga burrito, a meal at Cafe Ynez is affordable, tasty, and just what this neighborhood needs.
This weekend Café Ynez is hosting a weekend-long Dia de los Muertos celebration.
The Cafe is offering a package deal of one champurrado (a Mexican chocolate drink), one sweet roll (traditional Mexican Sweet Pastry), and one tamale with your choice of chicken or mole, or vegetarian cuarasmeno, for only $7.50.
Head over for brunch or lunch, because the offer is only available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday until 3 p.m.
